Have you tried it?
I bought a belt.
I decided to be brave and I got in my pool. Now I know I live in Southern California but the water is not warm yet. We have days where it is over 90 and then we are back to 69. So the water does not go over 70. Heating the pool is not cheap so I refuse to do it.
Ok so pool running is not easy. First I felt like a fool and it gets boring really fast.
I am lucky we have speakers outside so at least I had music.
I went in the deep end only and did a 60 min workout the first day.
My legs felt like Jello at the end.
I cannot say I love it but I am convinced it is a good workout.
I think I will continue doing it this summer as cross training. I did another session in the pool 45 minutes with 5 miles walking on my TM to replace a long run day.
Then I got a cold. The water is cold and I stayed cold for a long time after getting out.
Now the temp is down to low 60s so I cannot go in the pool.
I stayed on the TM fast walking...and I did my PT exercises foam rolling and stretching every day.
Yesterday I had my MRI for my knee.
They gave me a disc for my doctor who I will see on May 2nd.
I asked for the actual report and they said I could have it in 2-3 days.
I asked Dr Google for some MRI images to compare mine.
It turns out that I did not become a radiologist by doing this....no it does require some years of college for that.
After putting a post on Facebook I got a message from a friend who's husband IS a radiologist and she said she would come get my CD and that he would look at it at home and txt me.
A few hours later I got a txt.... Nothing is wrong with the knee. No tear.
Oh happy news!
I also have a friend in Quebec who is a radiologist and she looked at the pictures of my MRI and she said the same thing.
I will get the reports tomorrow or Friday from the radiologist here and it should say the same. Knowing this I am curious to see what the Dr will y next week.
I definitely looks like I would not need surgery.
I am happy that I don't have to worry about making a tear worst.
I am planning on covering the 13.1 miles of the OC Half Marathon. I don't care how long it will take. I will run/walk it. The run part will be slow.
Today I did 3 miles of fast walking and I did 4 x 0.25 miles slow running just to see if I had pain. It felt a little stiff at first but it was not bad.
So that is where I am at for now. Still frustrated but hopeful....
