I’ve been a runner for over over 25 years. It’s a huge part of my life. So when I started having knee pain a couple summers ago to the point that I couldn’t run, it was devastating. At first I thought I had torn something and when I realized I had not, I was thrilled.
But then I got what was likely worse news and that was when the doctor looked at me and simply said “You have bad knees”. He went on to say that I was too young (early 40s) for my knees to look the way that they did but it was my reality. Arthritis. Minimal cartilage. He then told me I would have to learn to “manage” them.
Let’s face it, there are pros and cons of summer season. Sure, a lot of that depends on the type of person you are…cold nature versus warm nature maybe? Perhaps your job allows you for some time off in the summer or maybe you have a job that ramps up mid-year.
No matter your view of summer, it can be a great time to step up our health and fitness game. Some things come more easily in the summer, but there are also cons to the summer months as well. Let’s see how we can capitalize on the pros and how we can fix the cons.
