Being in the wrong place at the wrong time…

Exercise is one of those “defining behaviors” for me. If I don’t exercise daily, there is an internal alarm that goes off like a crisis bell. Any injury that stops me from exercising is the great enemy and as I get older, this enemy just gets stronger. Luckily, I have kept such challenges at bay, and I’ve been able to exercise every day for the last few years.

Last month, tendonitis flared really badly in my knee (I had medial collateral knee surgery when I was in college on this knee, a major martial arts injury that I can tell you about someday). Usually, this tendonitis is manageable, but this time, it was so painful that there was no way I could put the strain of running on the knee. I know what you are thinking: Take a day or week off of it completely. My doctors and physical therapist of the past would tell me the same thing. Unfortunately, that internal alarm kept going off and I had to respond in some proactive way.
