Saturday, day 6 of week 5

Well today sucked, I had to be at work all day and I dont get off until midnight tonight, so I wont be able to get my interval training in. I was thinking about doing it on sunday which is normally my day off, but I might just take the day to rest. I think my knee needs it.

When I got home last night as soon as I stepped out of my truck my knee cap twisted weird and I got 2 sharp tinging pains on either side of my knee cap. It didnt hurt too much and I didnt think anything of it, I was too busy thnking of gettin changed so I can get my resistance training done. So I started my routine and I didnt really feel anything during the warmup period, but once I got into the routine and was changing from one position to another I kept getting the sharp pain again. I gave it 100% and really pushed out 3 circuits and was pretty sweatty, but it just hurt too much to do one more, so I only completed 3 circuits. I was a little bummed but I knew it would be stupid to push my knee harder and risk seriously injuring it.

So maybe its good I had to be at work all day, and now that I just got done overlooking week 6's routine, I think I will relax tomorrow too to make sure my knee is totally fine for mondays routine. Week 6 has alot of leg stuff and standing jumps so I want to be ready.

I weighed in today at 164.5 lbs, so I am still losing weight, which is good cause Im really getting antsy about the gut still lingering. Despite my nearly 3" loss it still stares at me in the mirror and just mocks me. I will be cranking up my interval training next week too. I have to, since I will be posting pictures again at the beginning of week 7. Gotta show improvement for those pics!!

Keep it up everybody and have a great weekend!

Oh man, I hope your knee gets better. I didn't get to workout yesterday as well. This has been one of the busiest weekends for me but I'm still staying strong. Well I better catch some z's. Enjoy the rest of your weekend and take it easy on the knee.
