My three things:

2) likely a tea party with DD when I get home from work
3) swimming tonight

Neat idea orleansrunner1962

1) Breve latte (consumed)
2) Trip to the gym at lunch (mobility or heavy lifting, maybe both)
3) survive evening #2 sans Irongirl.


Good luck erinmcd

Safe travels strider

Wow cbaker1, that's just crazy.

Just go easy MikeM, you don't want to aggravate it! Do you have a compression sleeve or something you could put over it? Swimming should be good for the knee.

Doonst, where do we meet?

Smiles is "backwards squats somekind of euphemism??? ;) :twisted:

I don't know what to call the squats? I have to start sitting on a step-stool and "Squat up". It's a physio exercise.

I run because it's my passion, and not just a sport. Every time I walk out the door, I know why I'm going where I'm going and I'm already focused on that special place where I find my peace and solitude. Running, to me, is more than just a physical exercise...it's a consistent reward for victory!

I Googled it! Too bad for Al. :(

The video I saw didn't have the stool, she just squatted under the racked bar to start, looked really hard to get a good position. I'm glad to hear about the step-stool, that would help getting a good position. Sounds a lot like box squats, but we still start at the top, sit on the bench (or box as the name implies), then press up.

My presentation went well. Nobody got yelled at, and I think I came across looking at least somewhat competent and intelligent.
