No diagnosis on the knee yet.  Will have a MRI done on Wednesday.  Took a full week off from running and decided to test things again today.  Ran 4.5 miles at the gym at a 9min pace.  No pain, but ran very cautiously. 

Ran 1.5 miles on TM...running with a weird kind of caution.  I kept it slow (10min/mile), things didn't hurt, but I was too fearful to run faster or longer.  The pain over the last couple weaks has not been very sharp, yet when  it appears it becomes almost impossible for me to run.

MRI:  Cleared to train for Boston.  A tiny bit of cartilage irregularity near the knee, but no tear, perceived damage or swelling.  They did think it was odd I was still feeling pain, so encouraged me to see an orthopedic doctor if problems persist.  I'll start small again and see what happens. 

6 miles on TM @ an overall 8:30 pace.  Cautious, yet worked my way up to a 2.5 incline and 8min pace.  No locking or pain today.  Leg does feel a little weak.  I will compensate with cross-training as I work up the mileage.  Hope to average 6 miles per day (+ 30 min elliptical) over the next week and work from there.

6 miles on the TM, progressively working up to 8min/mile and holding for 3 miles.  Total average of 8:10/per mile.  A little week, but absolutely no pain.  Best I've felt since pre-marathon in October.  Got a ways to go to build up endurance and speed again.
