Knee/shin issue

  • Jul 13th, 2019 at 12:44AM

Scott - I sent you an email about this.

I woke up this morning with a bit of pain in my lefty knee/shin, which is the same pain I got at the end of KB1 almost 3 years ago. It was patellar tendonitis and I didn't take care of it or listen to my body (or my trainers). It took several months to heal, so not again! I know I got it from all of the jumping. If I jump at home, I double up 2 yoga mats so I'm not jumping on my hard tile. At any rate, now, at the first sign of any pain that's not "normal", I am stopping and will modify. Not ideal right now, but need to switch to alternate cardio for sure. Scott, I'll wait to hear from you on other exercises. Not taking any chances here!

I'll keep my diet on track and do everything that doesn't cause me pain. : )))

    Ok. I am 100% sure we can work around this sensibly. You did the right thing by listening to your body and not training through it.

      hi Jennifer, tendons take a hit when our muscles are tight. consider making some extra time to stretch quads and hamstrings as long as those stretches dont hurt your parellar tendon. good luck healing up!

        Thank you Mark, Scott & Nathan!! I will definitely continue listening to my body and stretching... I feel this is something that is really going to help!
