I'm starting to get very frustrated with how long it's taking my knee to recover to a reasonable level that will allow me to work out at an intensity that feels good. I've been shorter and lighter workouts, since I can't just do nothing, but I'm starting to feel like those lighter and shorter workouts are achieving absolutely nothing. Does it count as a workout when you barely break a sweat?
I'm hoping to start swimming, which will be a lot easier on my knee, but I've been hoping to start swimming for over a month and still haven't made it to the pool once. I've been so busy this autumn, between work, vacation, and playing mom's taxi. The few evenings I don't have anything on the go I'm usually scrambling to try and keep my house in a presentable state. Add to all that the severe lack of energy I've been dealing with, and swimming has just not happened. Lots of excuses, but at least I haven't given up on going yet. I will NOT give up on going.
In the mean time, back to babying my knee...eventually I'll be able to do a full work out again. I just need to be patient and not push it. It's just hard!!
