Today, the kids and I headed to the JCC and I was determined to get some sort of workout, even with my knee problem.

I’m a bit gun shy to try to do any weights (even upper body).  I’m hoping that I’ll feel more like it next week.  I’m trying to focus on rest and rehab.  It’s really hard to rest.

I did 20 minutes on the Nu Step today.  It really doesn’t feel like a workout, but it’s better than sitting at home and it doesn’t hurt my knee at all.  I haven’t tried to up the intensity using it since that’s not really supposed to be my focus.

After the Nu Step, I headed to the pool.  I put on a floatation belt and did 25 minutes of bicycling in the deep water.  I didn’t have any pain and it felt good.

I still don’t feel like I had a great workout, but I took a long nap while the kids were sleeping this afternoon.  So, I must of done something right.

Next up:  PT in the AM.
