Thanks again to each one of you who responded to my post about my knees.
I'm recognizing how scared I get at the thought of NOT being able to exercise.
I stopped my LBWL and HIIT ( actually all cardio on my TM) for 10 days but I did a lot of UBWL and AB work so it was okay.
And I am happy to report that my knees and calves are fine now --it was caused I think both by overdoing ( thanks for taking me to task on that Baff) and those wretched cross trainer shoes.
I went back to ss cardio a couple of days ago and did HIIT yesterday and my knees/calves are fine.
I am so grateful that I found a good running store in my next door town and have the RIGHT SHOES.
I also just had my first session with a wonderful trainer who I found by googling for one in my area.
What a difference it makes to have someone really look at how you are doing.
I learned a lot from your great postings here on 3fatchicks and also the NRL4W thread on JPFitness, and Krista's terrific site, but I feel I have just got up to a total new level by having my trainer Kay watch just how I was doing the movements and give me in person corrections.
I'm not using her for my workouts but plan on having her come to my house every 3/4 weeks both to keep checking my form and to give me new exercises.
I highly recommend finding a pt in your area.
It's worth every penny spent.
