You guys - I thought I'd fail because I'd wimp out and it would get too hard. Or, I'd just be too lazy to get off my rear end and actually work out. I didn't think I'd fail because I'd suffer some sort of knee injury from unknown source.
It could be that the two workouts were too much for my body. It could be. But, I kinda doubt it because they weren't hard workouts at all - thirty minutes of time, including a 5 minute walking warm up and down, and 90 seconds of walking followed by a light 60 second jog is not exactly strenuous. I honestly think that Ellie did it to me. I know, blaming a 2 year old for my workout failures isn't very cool of me as her mom, but there's this game she likes to play, where she sits on my feet when I'm sitting down and I raise my legs up and down and give her little rides. She's 30 pounds, and maybe that's just too much for my old lady knees. (After all, I'm almost 30!).
Needless to say (kneedless to say! ha!), I've got a situation going on where I can hardly walk, can't bend my knee and have a terrible time lifting my leg off the ground at all. Very painful. Ice and Advil and compression helps, but when they wear off, it's obvious that it's getting worse. I'm going to the doctor today. Pretty positive I'll either hear "Rest, Compression, Ice and Ibu" or "let's do an MRI or XRay for further diagnostic testing" (after which I'll just hear "rest, compression, ice and ibu"). I'm going anyway because after a week of hobbling and the pain getting worse, it just seems like the right call.
Hoping there will be a C25K Take 2, but for now, I'm watching The West Wing episodes with my sick baby boy during naptime because I can't do much/anything else around the house. And eating brownies. Because, duh.
