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.

    Sounds like you did great today. Just listen to your body, it won't lie to you.
