I'm feeling very lethargic today and have had trouble with my get-up-and-go this week. I took a day off from exercise Monday and am doing the same today. Before Monday, I had exercised about 46 days in a row. I felt guilty ending my streak, but I was feeling burned out, and my knee has been causing me some discomfort. I think I hurt it trying to run on the treadmill a number of months ago. It has been bothering me off and on, and I've tried icing and wrapping it, but it gets aggrevated again if I am exercising too hard. I've been trying to avoid activities that cause discomfort, but the problem still hasn't gone completely away. It hasn't been so severe that I would even classify it as painful, but I'm worried about doing something that pushes it to that point. I'm going to the doctor to have it checked out tomorrow. Hopefully, she can put me on the right path to be able to work out as much as I want without any knee issues.
