The other two times I've run since the knee injury, there was no pain during the run at all, a lot of swelling afterward but no pain during.  Not this time, I had to limp through the first mile before things started to loosen/warm up, 10:45 first mile.  It felt good after that, 9:30.  I came back and iced it for 30 minutes which isn't normal for me.  I usually finish a run, shower, and get on with the day.  Is 30 minutes long enough?  

Twenty degrees out this morning.  I don't have a lot of experience running in the cold.  I used to just bag it or run for a bit on a treadmill.  But twenty is nice.  Hat, gloves, pants, and a warm pullover is all I needed.

Had an appointment with an orthopedist for my knee this afternoon.  His best guess is a meniscus tear.  I have an MRI on Monday and another appointment on Wednesday when I'll know more.  It looks like it will have to be scoped.  Crap.

NO TEAR!!!  The MRI didn't show any damage to my knee at all.  There is still some fluid and swelling but it has gotten a lot better in the last few weeks.  I do have instruction to not run on it for the next 6 weeks.  Its going to be annoying not being able to run until then, but at least I don't have to have it scoped.
