It was kind of different today working out!
No pool... That was WAY different. I did miss my pool lol....
I had EJ ALL to myself today. I had his undivided attention which resulted in a great workout. He showed me some more fun exercises that I could do. We were able to discuss my knee history in greater depth and the progress I have made with it through the program.
Based on discussions, I was very disappointed he directed me to drop down to the 5K. I think he was surprised that I was planning on the 10K and I was surprised that he was thinking 5K. LOL.
Once we talked through the logistics I had to admit he was right and resign myself to the 5K. Initially disappointing, but I know that it is the correct decision. In retrospect I have struggled after walking 6 miles in the training plan etc... I have to claim the truth that the risk of further injury is NOT worth the cost. I REALLY don't want surgery LOL! I'm working hard to keep away from that surgeon's knife - this will be a lifelong challenge to keep my Knee Strong!
On the bright side - my walking partner Rose gave me a big hug and encouragement while I was still processing the change. We will definitely rock the 5K!
(Plus it won't take me 2 hours to complete LOL!)
