Ouch, aches and pains :(

Tuesday, July 09, 2013

I'm encouraged that I've been consistently doing some exercise everyday, even if only ten or twenty minutes. Discouraged though at how much my right knee is hurting. I guess my body is protesting. After all, I've asked very little of it for years, now all of a sudden I'm making it work. I've mostly been using my elliptical and I think that might be what's hurting my knee. I'm thinking of switching to walking and see if the pain improves. Don't want the pain to become an excuse to stop exercising.

    I did ice it a couple times and took some ibuprofen. That helped quite a bit and I was able to go for a walk!

    And don't be afraid to take Advil or another pain reliever. Ibuprofen reduces inflammation as well as killing pain.

    Keep up the good work. Your knee will get stronger and the stronger it gets, the less it will hurt.
