Weekly Weigh-In: No Gain, Moderate Pain
Nothing too exciting to report from my weigh-in on Saturday. I didn’t lose or gain any weight. I’m still at 223 pounds. I did experience some mild knee pain early in the morning, but it disappeared once I started moving. I chalked it up to morning stiffness.
That changed once I hit the grocery store. The knee pain came back with abandon. Why? My 2-inch heels on my feet.
Sigh…yes my knee is healing, but not enough where I can wear anything but sneakers.
This morning I did decide to try my first spin class in two weeks – the 30-minute beginners class. I could immediately tell the two-week break from spin was good. Sprints and seated climbs were pain-free and I heard fewer popping sounds. I wish I could say the same for standing climbs. I could stand for about a minute before the knee started hurting. So I kept my butt in the saddle most of the time, standing every 5 minutes to give my tush a 30 second break from the seat.
I made it through the class and felt so good I decided to go 20 minutes longer. I loved getting in some cardio. The walks are good, but this got my heart pumping. Hopefully I can do another session on the bike this week.
