I have always been a big believer in prayer, so if you don't already do that, you should start :), but I am for sure a big believer in physical therapy now as well! Those doctors know what they are doing.
A week ago I couldn't even run 3 miles without feeling pain and then having my knee bug me for 2-3 days afterwards. Since I started physical therapy less than a week ago, I've been able to do this:
If you are having problems, run (or limp) your way to a PT- it could change everything for you. I wish I would have done it 6 weeks ago so I wouldn't have had to miss so much of my training.
|Elevation Gain:||968 ft|
|Avg Speed:||6.8 mph|
|Avg HR:||173 bpm|
|Max Distance:||7.12 mi|
|Avg Distance:||5.58 mi|
On a totally different note- I know absolutely nothing about heart rate zones. I wear my HR monitor with my Garmin, but it basically means nothing to me because I don't know how to properly train with it. I just go out there and run as fast as I can and then come home. You guys have any tips? Advice? How am I supposed to use this thing?
