Congratulations on your injury - you're an athlete now. Good luck with the 5K - I still haven't done my first - and will not try to make it on a hot day!
Ha ha--I think I actually did the damage while lawn mowing--due to various circumstances the grass (hay) was around two feet high--it took a good solid three hours to do my little patch of lawn (doing the old lift the mower, gradually set it down, then go back and forth a couple of times trick).
I've no doubt I can "walk" 5K--I had a nice three mile walk while at camp last week in about 45 minutes and that included a pretty major hill--of course, the knee wasn't bothering then, either. We'll just have to see how it goes!
