What about the knees?

I don't know anything about exercise. Seriously, like nothing.

So I'm concerned, I guess, a little bit. About my stupid knee.

It feels a LOT better, mind you. A lot. I can bend and twist in any number of ways and it's not a problem. I even jumped up and down just a little bit the other day it was okay.

But when I wake up in the morning or if I sit for a long time while at work? It's pretty hurty.

I'm still walking. I busted out a really good pace today and walked for thirty minutes and covered more than the mile and 1/2 that I would normally cover in that time period. It was a rough path even with lots of going upward hills and not so many going downward hills.

And right now? My knee doesn't hurt at all. It's not purple anymore either, so that's cool.

I'm just afraid of injury. I don't want to hurt something and keep myself from my goals.

I'd have it looked at. Could be the menicusus. Just be sure so you don't injure yourself futher.

Lord, I dropped an ice pack on my toe this a.m. and my very first thought was PLEASE do not let it be a broken toe then I'd have to stop running.

Better to be safe, than sorry. If it's just a little messed up now and you have it looked at, you can heal before it's too late. If you wait, and mess it up SERIOUSLY then you could potentially not get to reach your goals. I'd do it soon.

Have it looked at - I am having knee surgery next week for a torn meniscus and I am convinced it stems from a fall I had in Sept 07.
