Spring is here:::.....the Texas
is gorgeous, flowers are in bloom everywhere, and we even had lots of
yesterday (much needed )!
One of my favorite arrivals in springtime is the large variety of birds that migrate to the south, and their lovely choir of voices!
My spirits are lifted every time I am still, and listen to their music.
On a more sober note:
...:::a bit about me: On Tuesday evening, I was racking up those LCW fitness minutes.....shooting for 60 when I "tweaked" my knee.
I have no idea how this happened as I was just doing low impact aerobics with excellent running shoes on. Looking back, I cannot figure it out.
I am ever so careful when I exercise.....::::having learned the hard way a few years ago when as a beginner runner, I ran too long/fast....ending up with a mild case of shin splints ( lasted only 2 weeks ) but I'll never forget it. Lol! I used to be even more of a crazy fitness addict than I am now. ( a too much - too soon - kinda gal )
I think I've gained wisdom...LOL!
Anyhow, the next day after a good night's rest, my knee felt fine. I gave it a day of rest, then I went to the gym last night, and paced myself with my hour circuit training routine ( omitting the lower body ST just to be safe ) with jogging between sets instead of my usual sprints.
I felt Great! However, last night, once again I felt a sore spot behind my knee....no pain, only sore almost as if it were bruised. Again, I have no pain, just a weird bruised sensation behind my knee.
So, for the time being, I have decided to walk/jog, enjoy the elliptical, and ST lightly until I am sure my knee is perfectly fine.
I found this article interesting:::...
Anyone have a similar experience? ...::or might be able to share some wisdom on the subject?
Now, I'm off to enjoy this beautiful day with my children....
