I injured my knees last week running. I have two pairs of the same shoe, one in a size larger than the other. I've been running in the smaller size and that has been fine, but it does rub my toes a bit. I decided to try running in the larger size to see if they would be better. I didn't get very far into my run before my knees starting hurting really badly, especially the left knee. I pushed myself to run a bit more, then had to stop and change shoes. The larger size was causing my feet to slip in my shoe, therefore, my knees were overcompensating. After changing shoes, I walked the rest of they way. It was just too painful to run.
Anywho, I am a bit disappointed because I really do enjoy running. I am frustrated that I can't do what I want to do fitness wise. Hopefully, when I get some more weight off, and figure out the proper shoe, I can get back to running again.
I haven't exercised since that night. Between my knees, and the stomach bug, and Thanksgiving, I haven't been able to. I plan to walk this week if the weather will cooperate.
1. Derezzed- Daft Punk on the Tron soundtrack
2. End of Line (Remix) on the Tron soundtrack
3.Time- Space Time Continuum (Spiral Galaxy Mix)
4. The Paradigm- Capital Kings
5. Manifesto- The City Harmonic
6. Supermassive BlackHole- Muse
7. Spotlight- MuteMath
Today's weight loss: None. My weight stayed the same.
Probably because I haven't been able to exercise and Thanksgiving. (I didn't overindulge like I would've in the past. I was very happy about that. Not eating junk in so long, I really don't crave it like I did. Just a little bit does the trick.)
So, total weight loss in 6 weeks is 19 pounds.
Although, I am frustrated about the setback, I am going to keep trucking along. I feel like a different person already, in these six short weeks. I'm not going to give up. I am going to keep moving forward, keep getting healthier. I am going to continue becoming the best me I can be.
