I had a similar incident. It was raining and my foot slid out from under me on the ramp at my house, and now my knee has been so sore ive had a hard time doing anything except walk. Im hoping it will heel by the end of the week so I can get back to work next week.

I'm sorry to hear about your injury. I hope your knee gets better soon! But you have a great attitude about trying to do other kinds of workouts as you wait for your leg to heal.

When I have had similar problems in the past (e.g., stress fracture in 2010, hamstring trouble this year), I have taken it as a sign that I should focus on my strength training, and I have made some real progress on developing some good habits around upper body and core strength.

Also, do you have access to a pool? If so, you could swim just using your upper body - wrap your legs around a "noodle" and then do breast stroke or front crawl.

I am so bummed that I took a fall while walking the dog. I have not been able to do any cardio. I plan to get back to the gym and at least try to do some yoga and weight training.
