Focus on Knees

I mentioned last week about some knee issues I had been experiencing. I went last night for a shoe fitting with the orthopedic. I'm trying out a pair of Saucony's this week - so that's one step.

I've modified my workout slightly to incorporate the stability ball and lower impact moves. I've also chosen an 8-week low impact routine to start next week once I complete my last ST session for my current 12-week routine. I have also video'd the squat moves I think are culprit and am going to send them to Corinne for analysis.

I didn't exercise on Monday - worked late. I did ST at home last night so I could wear my tighter-fitting clothes and Mark could tape some of my moves. This way, Corinne can actually see where my knees are. Planning to work late tonight and will probably get to a WW meeting in the city vs. going tonight.

I find it ironic that a year ago I was walking around very overweight to moderate obese and that I end up having issues when I get to a healthy zone and try become physically active. Oh well, I'm sure it'll all work out - this isn't enough to take me out of the game yet.

That's all for today. Hope everyone is doing well and I'll check in on the blogs once this latest deadline is met. We also had a new girl start yesterday and I have to prepare some work for her to do this morning.

Good for you for doing some serious investigating about the knee issues rather than throwing in the towel. That's dedication.

I hope it all works out and you get to squat to your hearts content soon!

(PS - I love the balance/stability ball. Love it love it.)
