Tuesday: Used as a flexibility day. Rolled the knees and hamstrings and glutes and quads and calves.
Wed: Ran 2 miles. Lots of pain. Walked quite a bit. Was discouraged. Lifted weights.
Thurs./Fri.: Knees still bugging me. Rested from everything except playing with the kids.
Saturday: Sat through a 2 hour meeting and knees didn't hurt. Jump roped for 45 minutes and ran 2 miles in the mountains. Only slight pain on the downhills. Walked until it loosened up, never really hit the sharp pain mark. Lifted weights.
All in all a good week. I think I had pain Wed. because of rolling aggressively the day before. I think I need to be more consistent rolling and not try to do it all in one day. I need more patience, but I think those knees of mine are getting better.
Here's a shout out to my friend Angi who's running her first marathon this Saturday! I'm so excited for her and I'm so proud of her. She's a very busy mom who's really sacrificed to make this dream come true for herself! Go on over and wish her luck!
