I realized that I was behind in my journal entries! I have been running on Tuesdays and cross training most other days. I think I will be able to successfully run a 5k but that depends most on my knee. I have recently injured my knee. I think it’s more just over use. Many of the ladies in my gym recommended me taking glucosamine.
I don’t take supplements or pills much so I wasn’t really sure what it was, but when I looked it up and spoke with a pharmacist it sounded like it could be beneficial. Just last night I started taking Osteo Bi-Flex. I don’t know much about this product and I haven’t spoken with my doctor about it so I can’t recommend it but from what it looks like it’s just a supplement to help rebuild cartilage and protect joints. I’ll keep you updated as I learn more. I hope to feature a doctor on here soon to answer some questions about joint pain and foot problems.
One more thing, I’m not even sure if it’s my cartilage or if it’s a ligament problem! I like to self diagnose. I’m kidding. I will say that today when I was teaching Body Pump (a weight lifting class utilizing a barbell) my knee did great. Please pray for me if you think of it.
