Running

After several months off, I’m finally running consistently again. Unfortunately, it will probably take a while to get back into the shape I was in before I injured my knee three years ago, if I can at all – it never healed completely…

  1. I drink half a pot a day…it hasn’t worked yet. But this is the most consistent I’ve been since the injury at both drinking coffee and running – so we’ll see what happens.

  2. Bicycling! The elliptical motion, especially if you “spin” is very good for the muscles and tendons.

    When I got hit by a truck and had a broken leg just below the knee a bit over 3 years ago, they were glad I was a bicyclist because it would help in the healing. It has; I don’t feel anything differently from before the injury. The first year, I felt weather changes, but that was it.

    If you can’t ride outside, get a trainer and ride 1/2 hour 3 times a week. Boring? Definitely! But, it does wonders for the knee. I have a friend who injured his knee running, and that is what he finally did, and it worked.

  3. Mike, at least you have a good reason why you stopped. I just stopped for no good reason. I just started working from home, and now during my lunch hour I am getting on the tread mill and walking / running for about 40 minutes.
