What to do now?

So I got the results from the doctor and it is not looking to good. Was told I should not be running anymore and will need to do rehab. In case you were curios I have a unbalanced pelvic which has caused a strain in my patellar tendon on my left knee. Luckily it is not tendonitis but I have been advised if I keep running without treating this it could lead to that. So the doctor has told me that I will need to take at least 6 weeks off while doing rehab to fix my pelvic area. They advised met that I need to start being more symmetrical in my daily activities. So that means no leaning on one side while standing, no crossing legs while sitting sleeping in certain positions that keep my hip from shifting.

NOW the question is what will I be doing to pass the time or somewhat keep my fitness. I will pretty much be out for 2 months which was devastating to hear especially since it feels like I just finished getting rid of a hip strain on my right side. However looking back this year has beared me some fruits of my hardwork. I got some PBs for my 5k and half marathon time. So luckily I was at least able to get those before I had to stop.

In the meantime, I will be biking and going back to light weights or body exercises that will not strain the knee as much. This will be a great time to strengthen the legs which will hopefully help my rehab and help me to maintain some form of fitness in my life while I wait patiently. Not going to lie, I was a bit frustrated to hear I cannot run but not much I can do about it now. Once I am better, I will be stronger and faster that is for sure. Hopefully, once I am healed I will have enough time to prep for my marathon coming up in May.

I just wanted to update you guys. Thank you for listening I hope that you all are staying healthy and continue training and being safe at the same time.

Stay happy, Stay healthy, Keep breathing
