My knee was fine today, just a tiny bit stiff. But I planned to run for an hour today and had to quit at 46 minutes because I strained something on the other side in my groin. Bummer. Makes me want to whine. lol! I iced it when I got home, but it is still sore. I am taking a rest day tomorrow, and possibly on Wednesday as well, to see if I can't get healthy. The PT at the gym suggested more bike time and less treadmill time for a while to ease up on the old joints. He also showed me another stretch to try to alleviate some of the tenderness.
I would have had to take a rest day tomorrow anyway, because the weather is supposed to be wicked. I live near Lake Erie and we get this weather called Lake Effect snow. We had white outs today and are expecting another 2 feet of snow overnight. Along with this we are getting severe wind chills, so I don't want to take Cooper for long walks until it warms up a little. That effectively forces me to ease up a little on the exercise. I will probably make use of my rower for the next couple of days!
