Knee is still problematic. Looking back, I know that I shouldn't have run on Sunday.
I've been smarter this week. I've iced and elevated the knee, wrapped it, and let it rest. In addition, I've been consistently taking the glucosamine, which I know is a long-term solution (not a short-term fix). It's improving, but it is nowhere close to 100%.
The Chips-n-Salsa half marathon is now about survival. My new goal is simply to finish without significantly greater pain than when I started - preferably with a smile at the end rather than a grimace.
I believe that resting was a good choice physically. However, it came at a significant mental / emotional price. I've lost my confidence.
Can I find it by Sunday morning? Only time will tell.
