It's a start

Well after my big run on thursday and the havock I did on my knees i am slowly getting back into the game. I took the week off hoping to recover from my last run and let my knees calm down. After about 4 days the swelling in my right knee the one i had surgery on twice finally went down but my left knee has continued to hurt. Im getting a little worried because its doing all the stuff my right one did before i had to have surgery on it. Everyday i get up and hope to have no pain with walking but it hasn't been the case. But today was better. I decided to give them a little test run today and attempted to see if I could fast walk the dog for a mile today with no pain. I stretched real good and left. I was able to do the whole mile with no pain. I felt the right knee just a little kinda like it was not a perfect 100% knee but not to bad either. So I decided to drop the dog off and go do my route just speed walking and see if they would hold up. My only problem was I had drank 33 oz of water before my walk so I knew it was not going to be good. I ended up having to cut my route down so I could swing by the house to go. And with having to walk it cuts down my distance i can get in the time I have. The last oh 8 houses to go I decided to just slightly run just to see and about 2 houses in my knee started hurting so i stopped walked a few seconds then started to run again and was able to finish the rest of the way with no pain.... I figured it's a start and it was alot better then I thought I was going to do. I would rather have been running but hey I could at least speed walk with no pain so It's a start.. Maybe I can work my self up again. I am not going to give up just yet until I talk to the doctor and see what he says.

Over the weekend I didnt stick so great with the diet so i gained back a couple pounds but then lost them once i got going again and have now lost 2 more. So yeah I am excited for that. Its finally starting to come off I hope...
