Well wedneday I enjoyed bootcamp, quickly showered and went back to the gym for my pt. Followed by a little quick run and OMG am I glad I did. My shoulder had gotten very week over the summer from not enough ST, It was so sore this am. Hope it feels better tomorrow. Today I enjoyed a visit from my dad and a couple of his brothers came on their motorcycles to check out our house. Finally had my son's hair cut and my nails done today :) Staying up too late catching up on emails & sparking. Going to regret it tomorrow am. Good night!

So went back to Zumba this am, it was nice to see a bunch of old friends. Then after showering I went to the pt followed by a walk w/my good buddy. Taking it easy for a couple months on my knee while trying cross training. My pt thinks my running barefoot on the treadmill and running in my vibrams may have contributed to my knee pain. Every time I run over a mile my knee begins to hurt so that is my reasoning for taking a break. I was really bummed at first b/c I wanted to start training for a full marathon :( and it is showing on the scale. So trying different things and trying to stay positive.

    Definitely let yourself recover. Nothing is worse than a nagging injury!

I'm sure you'll be back to training in no time. Just listen to the PT and do your exercises at home. (Ok, I'm very guilty of skipping those, but they really work!)

Also, maybe add in pilates or a similar workout that strengthens muscles without putting too much pressure on joints. I know that helped my knee issues immensely!

    Breaks are good every once in a while... you'll be back to training and in marathon shape before your know it!

    Take it easy. Injuries can really be an enemy to our goals but we have no other option but to listen to our bodies.
I hope your knee feels much better soon.
Take care.

"Being defeated is often temporary, giving up makes
it permanent." - Marilyn von Savant

    The last time I saw this quote was on a poster in an athletic exhibition. It was put a little differently: "The pain of defeat is nothing compared to the pain of quitting!" Still, the meaning remains the same.
Thank you for the reminder!
