So I took last weekend off from running and doing lower body resistance training hoping to address an annoying mild ache I was feeling in the top of both knees. I resumed my weekend 5K run on Saturday which went ok, I didn’t really feel the pain while running, just the overall disagreement my lower body feels when asking it to run at 50+ years of age. However today it feels like the pain is right back at about the same level it was before.
I plan to still do lower body resistance training this week and hopefully still run next weekend. This may just be one of those things that either goes away slowly or is just the new normal. For whatever reason all of my joints are feeling sort of cranky right now.
