45 minutes on the ellipse plus 15 minutes doing leg extensions. Knee swelling almost all gone! Pain almost gone. Just need a tad more range of motion and I'm working on that.
Only issue remaining is my strained back . . . and I believe that tonight it may be feeling better too.
Thursday is going to be a virtual day off (just going to walk).
Friday is going to be my first day running assuming my back is better by then. Only going to go about 1/4 mile and have promised my doctor that if the knee feels ANY different at all I will instantly stop running. Then, I start adding distance slowly.
This will work.
The great predictor aka the 5k prep workout.
