exercising through injury

Saturday, November 20, 2010

my knee is taking its own sweet time getting better. Part of the problem is I either 100% stop exercising or over-exercise when I'm injured. I think (hope) I'm finally learning to take it slow when injured but don't totally stop.

It's a learning curve :)

    Hi BlueJean99,
I have worked through injuries myself. I fell down on my left knee last summer, and I had to lay off of it. I didn't know how to get back into exercise with a bruised and out of sync knee. I thought I was done for. Then in December I did physical therapy for six weeks, and I learned the correct way to "get back on the horse" I fell off of. You're right. Slow and steady is the way to get back into important activities and exercise. Thank you for sharing your journey to health.
