Change of Plans

Sooooooo … today was supposed to be the day I directed your attention over to the “Workin’ It Out” tab and asked about your goals (and who was going to run the MCM 10k with me!). Grand plans for talk of training and fitness and goals and wellness and so on.

But, you see how only day 1 is marked off? Well, yah. This happened:


Yep, blew out the knee. Here’s the interesting bit … I’m not sure HOW I did it. The first training day I noticed it was hurting, so I haven’t run since then … and it’s only gotten worse. Today, we get the brace. JOY.

So … who has recommendations on stuff I can do to not lose the base I’ve built up, while I heal? It’s not like a bike or elliptical is going to do me much good right now. And Zumba is totally out of the question.

Quick! Someone help before I go drown my sorrows in cookie dough!


One Comment to “Change of Plans”

  1. Hey – just stumbled onto your blog, so hi!

    I tried to take up running a couple of years ago but found it just did not agree with my knees. Hopefully yours will cooperate, but while you’re healing maybe give water jogging a try. It’s not just for grannies anymore! You jog in the pool wearing a foam belt, and when done properly, can be quite a workout while still letting your knees rest. You do need a buddy or waterproof mp3 player to keep you company though – alone it’s horribly boring.

    Hope you heal up soon!
