Last night was my first PT session as well as the first time I was able to speak with someone about my MRI results. I went in knowing I wasn't going to be thrilled with what he was going to say, but tried to stay somewhat optimistic.
The truth is I've been pushing it these past few weeks and now I have to pay the price.
I have a torn meniscus [we already knew this] and a cyst in the back of my knee [not sure how that happened] so that explains my pain.
The Bad News
No running-kickboxing-jump & drill-dancing, etc.
All of my usual cardio classes/routines.. no more
For at least 4 weeks.
He knew as soon as he saw my face that I was bummed, I mean we all know how much I love my kickboxing!
For now he wants me to stick to walking-elliptical-biking/spin
3 things I hate to do.
We are going to reevaluate my "situation" in 2 weeks and decide if I need the surgery.
What this means for you & my bloggy/ the good news:
I'll be posting a lot more upper body strength workouts
Elliptical/Treadmill walking interval circuits
Maybe even some more recipes?
All in all I know it's not the end of the world but you have to see if from where I am coming from.
I work out hard 6 days a week, I love what I do. I also work out with my friends. We all take the same classes, and spend too much time thinking/talking about them outside of class. It may sound over dramatic, but it sucks knowing what you're missing out on and having to hear about it.
Blah, I'm just being bitter and bummed. Bare with me okay?
