Pain in the knee… pain in the a…

After physical therapy yesterday, my knee started to hurt worse than it ever has. I could barely stand up while trying to make dinner last night. Sigh. This sucks. I wanted to go to spin class to finally get some cardio today.

2010 January workout calendar with stickers_thumb[2]The other day I came across this old workout calendar I had on the wall in 2010. (Funny. I still use stickers. Hahaha. But, hey, it helped me lose 20 pounds that year). Each volleyball is at least 2 hours (up to 16 hours a week). The dark squares were at least an hour of CrossFit. The runners were 5ks. In February I added hiking before work.

On one hand I loved that. Playing ball with my buddies. Getting outside and being active every chance I could. Having physical goals and chasing after them. If I could do that and more without consequences I still would. But this is also a reminder of how I got myself into this situation in the first place and how long I have been ignoring it. The red Xs are the days I couldn’t do anything because my shoulder and knee were hurting.
