I think (hope) the five days off from running/lower body activities have served my right. I will step out tomorrow morning and test the knee. Obviously, I will take it easy and stop if it tells me to. I guess this week off has taught me to be patient. Something that escapes me from time to time. It also will teach me that recovery is key to improvement, and not the constant training that can over-work the body.
