My knee injury isn’t as bad as I had feared – “just” a sprain of my popliteus muscle, tendonitis, and damage to the posterolateral corner.
Remedy is PT for several weeks and getting my walking program gradually back on track. As soon as we figure out which of the favored PT groups accepts my “Cadillac” insurance program in the next week (imagine not having good insurance?), I will get going on rehab and back to walking. Hopefully that will break this dreadful weight loss plateau that I’m on now – being menopausal sucks. Plus, I miss walking; biking is out of the question as is any other lower extremity activity. Upper body strengthening is fine but does not provide the same bonus as walking outside in the glorious spring before the Arizona heat hits full furnace next month.
I should be able to get on track to walk/run a 5k (just like the good old days) in a few months, weather permitting – won’t do it in 115° temps! But, what a great excuse to travel, hmm.
Off to grab some pain relievers and soak in our therapeutic tub that allows me to put salts in it. What a great addition to the house!
