2020 Strikes Again!
Tuesday, December 01, 2020
Made a plan for December. Then wouldn't you know it, 2020 struck again!
I think it was later in the same day that I put my plan into place. DH and I were running through the woods with our puppy son (who needs tiring out in the evenings!) when suddenly sharp knee pain! I was horrified because for the last couple months I have had knee cap twinges when I was walking downhill in the mornings. Figured it was age, cold weather etc. because I was still able to work out just fine and it didn't seem to happen other than in the mornings.
Now, looking up the symptoms and descriptions online, I am 1000% sure it is patellofemoral pain syndrome. My knee feels loose. And when the pain strikes it is definitely centralized under/above/below my kneecap.
So instead of kicking off December with passion and intensity I absolutely must RICE it up! AND it must not let a lack of cardio derail my plans. December won't look like I want it to probably (In more ways than one!) but I will have to focus very much on doing the best I can in all other areas of health!
Here I go to do some core exercises and then its a Hallmark Movie with leg on a pillow and ice on my knee!
