Yesterday I did my first "long" walk since both injuries have healed. I decided to do 1.5 miles to start out with (mistake 1) and I choose a new track (mistake 2) and it ended up having 3 huge inclines, great for the muscles and heart but horrible for my knee. The first wasn't so bad but by the time I was half way down the second I could feel my knee acting up and by the end of the track I was limping
I am not sure if I should walk through the pain or give it time to rest again. My goal, other then health and weight loss, is to run in a zombie 5k sometime in the fall, I think I have plenty of time to let my knee rest but I also do not want to fall into old patterns and end up completly off my eating plan and 30 pounds heavier (again).
I want this!
