#FitReaders Check-In

  • This check-in is for January 1st – 7th.
  • I completed my first 5K!  Sadly, I hurt my knee doing it.

  • Even with rest, the pain in my knee spread to my hip, which means this is more than just a minor setback.  The problem with ITBS is that I can’t just jump right back into what I was doing once the pain goes away.  I’m doing my physical therapy exercises and light yoga for now. I’m also restarting my walking program from the beginning (averaging 1K steps per day), and rebuilding the progress I made over the past year.  With any luck, I’ll be back to trying to get 9K steps a day within a couple of months.

    1. It’s an injury that I’ve had for over a decade now, but I haven’t had a flare up in a long time. It’s also why I don’t run, but have been trying to work up to jogging again some day. I was really annoyed that it chose now to flare up again, since I was only a few weeks away from starting a Couch to 5K program.
