C25K: W3D3 - Three Weeks Already! It Goes So Fast!

Recommended Posts

Thank you so much! Suffice to say for now, increasing leg strength makes complete sense to me ... I bet that's it. My legs are definitely out of shape (I have mistreated my poor knees!), and yes it felt more like my bone was affected vs. actual joint. I am still not sure though. What I did find odd was that the inside of my knee is painful to touch.  I have more questions to ask and will respond in more depth later today. I'll also watch the video before responding as well.   :)

Thank you so much Azatol. Your experience is appreciated and I will act on what applies definitely!  It was important for me to share that I appreciate that you do not come across in a  'It's worked for me. It will work for you" attitude.  I've noticed, via many posts, that you recognize and acknowledge that we are each different. Your experience, honesty and humbleness, I deeply appreciate. Love it!  You make it easy to engage and to absorb! Thank you!!

 

I watched the video. I have not tried the leg exercise. It looks like it would hurt my knees - like it would place a lot of stress on the knee itself?  I will try it out after this evenings walk - yep, I took your suggestion on walking. I have also committed to walking on my off days.   About my knees (to give a bigger picture): I have a difficult time squatting down and then getting back up without pulling myself up via the counter, (so embarrassing to admit as I let myself go). :(  Also, my son was here yesterday. I had no idea what planks were.   Now that I know ... I want to try!   I'm going to walk for now and add running as I can.  It did feel a tiny bit better yesterday, so that's good.  Achy even as I sit here.  I'm going to look up how much walking strengthens knees later today - for support and encouragement.  :)

I am still alive - just in case anyone missed me ... LOL  Computer will be gone for one more week, (I suck at texting responses from kindle, so I am waiting for my computer) and then I'll be back regularly to check in/update, AND check up on your YOUR updates - can't wait!!  I've missed reading and being inspired/motivated from updates, and contributing/responding as well!   Hoping all are doing wonderfully well!   :)  :)  :) CHEERS!!
