Well finally my knee has recovered enough to start running again...but even though I couldn't run I have been using the exercise bike that DH bought me for my birthday, and I was using it every other day...have discovered the delights of padded cycling shorts and the wincing pain of chaffed bum!...but today was the day to start the programme again. I thought it would be easier...wrong, the humidity today is horrible...but I stuck to it and from the amount of insects I had to spit out I must have been moving at a reasonable pace. The knee has held up and I am now sitting with an ice pack on it just to cool it off. Really determined to do this...am on medication that piles on the pounds and I have put on 1 stone this year...I know its a viscious circle, the heavier I am the more pressure and stress knees are under...so the deal is I will do some form of exercise for at least 30mins everyday...one thing I did notice...my recovery from the runs was much quicker so the bike must have done something.
