I walked 3.9 miles last night. The knee felt alright. I wore the brace like a good girl. Truth be told, I don't like walking in it. It's uncomfortable and for some reason, I keep having to adjust it. Anyway, I got home, had some ice cream (I know, I know!) and it was OK. I woke up this morning and it hurts like hell. WTF? It's so frustrating to finally start moving again only to have this nagging injury or pain or whatever it is.
It doesn't hurt on the bike so maybe I should just keep riding that until the knee pain is completely gone? I don't have a road bike though. I have a beach cruiser which is great but it's not like I can really get after it and work up a good cardio on it. Or do I just keep walking through the pain and strengthen that muscle? I don't know but I'm pretty ticked about it at this point. I hate when my body doesn't cooperate.
No big plans for the weekend. We were going to hit up the beach this weekend but they're calling for rain so we'll see how it goes. For all you moms out there, Happy Mother's Day!
And in honor of moms everywhere, I give you a Friday Funny...
