Ouch. Did you hurt yourself when you fell? I hope you're feeling better soon.

eek! Hope no damage was done!

I think I would scale the walking back a bit until you can work up to the 3 miles. Not worth risking hurting yourself over it! You can still lose weight just fine walking 1 mile till you get limbered up a bit and strengthen your muscles. Just sayin'! ;)

Have you seen a physical therapist about your knee? I also have arthritis in my knee and I have to say that it feels a lot better when I do exercise. When I was having pain though, I went to a physical therapist that helped and gave me exercises.

I also agree that you have to work up to it.

I, too, have to medicate for my knee just so I can sleep--it sucks! My doctor said that going from some exercise to a lot really fast can cause anterior knee pain... so easing into exercise might be the route for you... you know after you recover from your fall :(

Your fall sounds bad :( all you can do is rest.

OUCH. Hope you feel better soon. I would definitely start out slowly but keep walking! The body is designed to move, not to sit.
