The knee is a bit better, or so I tell myself.

I tried taking it easy the last 2 days, but <insert tons of reasons why a person can’t just sit on their tuff all day>. I was pretty successful with doing nothing on Saturday, but our internet went out on Sunday 😦 and I am not much of a TV watcher, so I schlepped around with the hubby to various (construction oriented) stores.

The knee hurt last night and is still a little sore today. It is getting better, the pain is less frequent and just a dull ache, but the stairs are still my enemy. I went to the gym today and did some knee strengthening exercises (they did not hurt, hurray) and also worked on the upper body muscles a bit.

The game plan is to do the same thing again tomorrow. If all is well I plan on getting back out there on Wednesday to test the water. I figure a mile to two mile run should show me where I stand.

Thanks everyone for your support…it helps to know I am not alone out there and I wish everyone who can’t run right now or is running with pain a speedy recovery!

    Sounds like a good plan–hope you continue to improve!

    I had salad, fruit and yogurt for lunch…just want you to know that it’s a retroactive jealousy ( :

    Hang in there!!! You will be running again soon. Get a little information and take it day by day.

    I second your motion! Injuries suck not only because, well, they’re injuries, but because it means you can’t run! Here’s to your knee recovering and you coming out stronger!
