Weekly Workouts

I ran... 24 miles

I lifted... 2 times.

I went to 1 tap class.

I had 1 rest day.

I did my PT exercises at home the days I didn't have my appointments, but I had 3 appointments.

Saturday- Epic lifting session @ Planet Fitness and my PT exercises. I was there for 2 hours, just taking my time.

Sunday- PT exercises. They make me knee hurt, so I didn't want to run. Ugh. I thought my knee was supposed to feel better?

Monday- 6 neighborhood miles & PT. Luckily, my knee felt good when I woke up and I didn't feel pressure at the numb part of my leg when I ran.

Tuesday- 6 neighborhood miles again & PT. The numb part was not noticeable. Very good. And good sunrise!

Wednesday- Lifting upper body & PT. The numbness in my leg has decreased A LOT. It even is starting to feel itchy! That means the nerves are waking up. The PT taped my knee and it felt SO STRONG when I went to tap class. In fact, after tap I really wanted to go for a run but I did not.

Thursday- 6 neighborhood miles & PT. The tape REALLY made me knee feel strong. It is crazy how that works! This was my best run in a long time thanks to my knee.

Friday- 6 neighborhood miles & PT. I was super tired since I had to get up at 4:30 and it was raining the whole time. But I got it done and it was enjoyable.

I'm looking forward to this coming week! I hope my knee continues to feel good.

I'm also excited because I learned some new exercises at PT. I'm hoping to get to the gym Saturday and Sunday so I can do them properly.


  1. Great job! I am so happy to hear that PT is helping--amazing. Enjoy your weekend.

  2. I'm so glad PT is helping and that you can just do the exercises at home (saves money and 4:30 AM wake up calls). Glad your runs were strong this week and you got lifting in too!

    1. Thanks! Next week I have two 4:30 wake up calls... ugh! Don't worry, to say I'm catching up on sleep this weekend is an UNDERSTATEMENT.

  3. I admire so much that you run in the rain! that is why you are so strong, that rain was sideways Friday ! I had to walk from my car to the offie, and that was enough to throw off my morning.

    I hope your knee continues to feel good too!

    1. I don't always run in the rain. When I was addicted to running, I would. Now, I only run in the rain if I really feel like running. And I really felt like running!
