I had been trying to run more and enter in some local 5K races. Before my second 5k on July 4th my right knee had become swollen. It turned out that I have a Bakers Cyst, extremely bad arthritis and a meniscus tear which is feeding the cyst. My orthopedist told me there isn't much I can do for it, just wait til the pain is bad enough and then have knee replacement surgery! I can exercise, he just said not to do much high impact stuff.
I'm now walking more (about 3-5 miles a day). I'm also alternating Jillian Michaels workouts every day. I do try to take 2 days off from the dvd's.
My son, Pete, called today from Iraq . He's doing well and trying to stay safe. He said the temp in the desert was 120 today!! I couldn't imagine that kind of heat.
It's late so I'll end here.
