Injured = C25K On Hold

I don't even know how to explain what happened... but what I can say for sure that I am now finding myself completely bummed out because with only 3 weeks left in the C25K program, I am unable to proceed until my knee feels better. The oddest thing happened last night - I was on my way out the door to go ride and as I bent down to put on my boots, I felt some sort of movement in my right knee. I'm not sure if it was a tendon, or a muscle? but at that moment I dropped and was in an immense amount of pain. My mom had to help me out and after walking for literally a min, the pain went away. I proceeded with my night and went to ride my horse with no issues. ... Until 2am when I awoke with a throbbing sensation in that same knee. I didn't sleep much the rest of the night due to the pain and have been hobbling around all day.

Needless to say, running for me now sadly has to be put on hold until all the pain is gone. As much as I want to proceed with this program, I have to be smart about the situation and take care of my body so that I don't cause permanent damage.

Hopefully this break won't be for very long!
