Okay, the plan is to run as much as possible without hurting myself!
I know that might sound like a pretty simple task but I’m starting to doubt it. I did three miles and didn’t feel great but I didn’t have any knee pain.
Now once I stopped running I did notice some swelling that a little icing won’t resolve. Icing my knee has worked wonders for me. I can actually bend it and walk on it and climb stairs with it, after icing. Now I need to invent a knee brace that stay cold.
I am sooooooooo tempted to register for a race but my better judgment say no.
I watched the ‘Marathon Challenge’ on PBS and it was so similar to my Team in Training experiences. If you get the opportunity to view this program, it is well worth the hour. I’m sure that we can all relate in some way or another.
I still have two players on my ‘Biggest Loser’ fantasy team but I am so far back in the weight lost point total. I didn’t realize how this program had evolved into a ‘game’ and the way the contestants are playing. I remember when it was just about losing weight.
Which leads to the fact that I am gaining weight and it ain’t all muscle!
