to throw me off track. Really this is only the first week of preparation and I already have feelings of doubt coming on. I had a good workout day Tuesday (yesterday was my gardening class-so it was a rest day) but my knee got really itchy (I think because of the contact of the sweat and brace on my knee) later that Tuesday evening. I put some cream on it which helped and then last evening ended up taking some anti-histamines. I'm really rethinking my plan at this point. I think I'm going to focus more on strengthening my knee (through abductor and adductor execises), yoga, walking,cross-training and then build up again to the jogging.
I will see what works, and stick with that.
