Morning After: Knee Feels Great

weight loss and knee injury

My knees feel great after yesterday’s 5K. No pain or swelling! Image courtesy of photostock and FreeDigitalPhotos.net.

After spending the day with the knee on ice, I’m happy to report that I recovered quickly. My knee feels great.

When I woke up this morning the knee was a little stiff, but that wore off with 30 minutes of yoga and stretching. The real test came a couple of hours later when I met with my trainer.

We started off on the treadmill, walking at my fastest pace for a quarter-mile. Immediately after I did the following:

I did 12 of each with a 15 second rest in between each exercise. Then it was back upstairs to do the treadmill and start it all over again.

Through it all no pain. My mobility was great.

Later this afternoon I’ll go for a short 2 mile walk and then give the knee the rest of the day off.
