I've been here in Saskatoon for a conference for the past three days. I'll be going home tonight.
I don't have anything much to say about the conference, but I have had two interesting and heartening sessions on the treadmill since I got here. I had considered bringing my bathing suit and doing some laps at the hotel pool, but of course forgot it, so I decided to courageously get on the treadmill and see what my knee had to say about it.
Yesterday and today, I did an approximately 20-minute walk on the treadmill. Yesterday, I built up the speed quite slowly but today I reached a faster walking speed in less time. So far, my knee has not complained any more loudly than it does on any other day. I am amazed.
I am still planning to make an appointment with a sports medicine doctor as soon as possible to see about getting a knee brace, specifically for exercising. I'm really excited about that possibility.
Wish me luck. I really do want to be able to exercise! And it might even inspire my hubby to do some exercise too...(wistful thoughts...)...
