January 22 - Duh.
I went to yoga this morning, and my knee felt great for the first 30 minutes of class. Sun salutations, hip openers, warriors up the wazoo - awesome. Then we started doing some poses where I had put my weight on my knees and my right knee really started acting up. My yoga instructor said "Your knee hurts when we do weight-bearing poses." It was such a "duh"moment. My knee doesn't just hurt in weight-bearing poses, it hurts partly because it is ALWAYS carrying the extra weight I put on two years ago. It was like a crystal ball floating in front of me and it said "when you lose weight, your knee will feel better, and you'll be able to run again." Well, powerful mystical universe, I heard you.
