Hello folks. I'm fresh out of the shower from run 2 of week 2 with a cat on my lap. It was lovely weather for a run. That said, this was probably my hardest run yet. The entire time, my left leg felt battered (still the sore someone hit me with a hammer feeling) and the calf was threatening to spasm. Ok, I expected the muscle pains, not quite so much the bone pain, but it makes sense. My real problem though was that my right kneecap was loose and hurt! Really sharp to land on. I hope that goes away. I made it through by taking each run as an individual event and promising my myself that it wouldn't be my Waterloo. I want this! I'm just afraid that maybe my body is going to prove everyone who says "people can't run who have rheumatoid arthritis and joint dislocations" right. Please tell me this is normal and I will strengthen up. On the bright side, in terms of aerobic fitness, I felt I could have pushed further. So the legs are the limiting factor. I only ran about 966 meters today (though I walked quite a ways too), but I'm proud to have completed the run without stopping. Other bright side, the right knee just popped a couple of times and feels better!
