Carli Lloyd says her injured knee is healing on schedule, though she’s still experiencing some pain and is only now beginning to run again.
“It’s going well,” she says on an ESPN podcast that came out on Thursday (May 19.) “You know, it’s a slow process. … I just have to kind of take my time.
“It’s little baby steps. Like, walking up stairs, the pain is lessening. Or getting into my car, the pain is lessening.”
The ESPN podcast was made to coincide with the publication of this profile of Lloyd in the new issue of ESPN The Magazine.
In the podcast, she says she’s been running in water and expects to start jogging “in the next week or so.”
That’s still the plan, she says.
“I’ll be ready. I’ll be good to go.”
