Recovering from “Runner’s Knee”

I have spent the past three weeks doing physical therapy for “runner’s knee.”  It has been frustrating, but my knee is better and I learned a few things.

I had been neglecting important parts of my body.  I need to keep up all different kinds of exercising and not get lulled into the same old, same old.  I hadn’t biked in ages and if I had, it may have helped to keep the quads strong and not as prone to injury. Plus, I forgot what a great work out the exercise bike is! This is a good reminder to me and my clients.  Don’t get into a rut with the exercise!

Also, every session began with heat on my knee.  I had to lie there for twenty minutes, doing nothing. Gasp!  But, as Weston and I say in our book Creating Space, welcome the spaces that are created for you.  I was made tofollow my own advice, and you know what?  It was good advice!  I rested, I thought and it did me good to be still.

I am eager to run again soon, but I will use all the little lessons learned!
