I had relatively long time off. Finally did the knee surgery, although I hoped it won’t be necessary, but MR showed that the damage was done and no other solution is currently possible.
Anyway – I lost 35% of right meniscus so the question was: what now? There is a possibility of early aterosclerosis. After discussing different ideas with doctor we came up with solution: do a lot of stability work and try to improve running form.
So here we go. I try to train with a trainer (first time for me, since I’m self trained) for stability work. Due to time issues I’ll do some training at home.
Started running without a problem and also swimming where I can’t do breaststroke so it is free style all the way.
So – no running, although after some rest I can even manage to run without pain, so I wonder if it would be ok :). But I can cycle (I’ll do it indoors) and swim (waiting for local indoor pool to open).
I am also waiting for another appointment with specialist on 26th. Counting days :/
After everything is well and done I plan to do intensive Chi running to really work on running form. Need to relieve knee.
The knee is getting better, but still no running for me. I resorted to a lot of strength workouts. Also added some workouts for legs, but I really need to be careful.
I already decided to try cycle yesterday, but was too late and the sun was just too hot, so today was the right day. It went smooth as silk and had no knee issues. What is even better is that I managed to include speed workouts and raised speed to 40 km/h. Yeeeahhhaaa.
All this running and strength work is finally showing.
When doing squats I suffer from valgus colapse and on the last day of our camping vacation I busted a right knee. Not sure what happened, but something between getting up to fast and rotating it.
Anyway – I limp now … and it hurts … and I can’t move that fast. Not to mention not doing squats :(. Solving the problem with a lot of ice and horse cream, but I’m looking into solutions to the problem.
Getting back to training. Some strength, running as much as possible and it’ll be cycle in a few minutes.
Flu made me think: according to Brett I need to think about supplementing on probiotics to get my system bulletproof. I will be looking into it, since I can’t afford to get sick again. Not to mention you feel like s**t.
