I can officially change my name from just plain old hungry girl.com to
I have had no knee pain for about two weeks. I got to the gym this morning and decided I was going to try it……
I strapped myself onto the treadmill and I was going to run until I felt the slightest pain, and once I did I would go stretch and ice.
1 mile, 2 mile, 3 mile…..no pain.
I ran out of time. I felt like I could have gone forever. I had to jump off the treadmill at
TWELVE MILES at 1.5% incline!! I had to stop, I was going to be late to faculty meeting ha!
I took it slow but I finished in 1:35
I stretched and foam rolled for 15 minutes and went to school.
Have I felt any knee pain since my run this morning? NO WAY JOSE.
I am like a Janae in a candy store.
5 people at the gym thought I was high because I was grinning the whole time and sang ‘Like a G6’ at least 7 times out loud.
You better believe I stuffed my face like my neice when I got to school……I was H.U.N.G.R.Y.
How I healed:
1st- I think it was pump that was killing my knee. I had never felt knee pain until I started taking pump this summer. Once I stopped taking the class than the pain has been demolished. ***Remember this is what works for me. I am fine never doing a squat or lunge again but no running…..I refuse.
2nd- Foam rolling and icing like it was b̶l̶o̶g̶g̶i̶n̶g̶ my job……I may be spending a little too much time blogging, but I love it.
3rd- Take a break. Rest days, no running (I took 2 FULL months off).
4th- For me, I wanted to keep my endurance up because I have some big dreams up ahead, so I kept cross-training. If I ever felt pain I stopped and stretched. This helped me keep my endurance up big time but I do feel like I lost my speed.
I am not going to run on it for a while for the risk of re-injuring myself. I am going to cross-train with a few runs until Jan. 10th when my training for Boston begins.
Lots of icing and lots of stretching:)
Peace out my sista’s and brotha’s from ‘nother mother.
