Doctor's orders to STOP the 30 day Shred... :(
Wednesday, November 16, 2011
All did not go as well as I wanted at the doctor's office today. He sent me right over to the physical therapist too.
I have injured my right knee from over-exercising. I am forbidden to continue the 30 day Shred right now, and he said I could not do the C25K either. NOT YET. My knee needs time to heal, and I have to give it several WEEKS.
I am so mad and so sad! I just want to cry. I'm so afraid of losing my motivation right now!
The therapist said I could not do any high impact exercises like jumping jacks, rope jumping, lunges, etc. Thank you Jesus, that I CAN still do Zumba! So there is a little silver lining. Just have to make sure I don't do anything high impact. (Like the Andale and Quebradita step) Dang it!
...and, I can only do Zumba for no more than 20 minutes once or twice a day. I can go for a walk on flat surfaces for not longer than 3 kilometers.
Sigh, it's not the end of the world, but it sure does hamper me. My get up and go is going away...
I already changed my fitness and nutrition values so now my caloric intake dropped a few hundred.
Moving to plan B now... If all goes well then maybe after Christmas I can move up to more training.
It's just a temporary setback, it's just a temporary setback, (chant chant chant)
