Porforis, have you first tried just walking the 5k with someone trailing you in a car just in case. It might be that after 2 or 3k that ligament could be telling you to stop. Be careful please, play it smart.

I can’t run. Getting hit by a car in 2013 screwed up my right knee and hip. But I walk as I can.

Exercise should be a part of a healthy diet plan. However, if like me you have COPD then just taking the next breath is sometimes a challenge. I wish I could just walk 20 feet without being out of breath. It makes diet more important than ever for me.

That’s why I try to walk as much as I can. I have asthma, and in the winter I have trouble breathing in the cold air.

Just keep as active as you can. Much of it is mental too. Trying to be active and not giving up.
I have been staying from 179 to 183 pounds. Being as it is FINALLY going to get warm enough to do things outside, I feel pretty good about not gaining a bunch of weight over the winter.

For the most part I think it's cartilage inflamed, ligaments are more or less back to normal. Same knee I messed up like 8 years ago that was screwed up for like a year (although I didn't take care of it at the time which really hurt things) I fully intend to not push it too hard and will adjust my plan based on how I'm feeling in ~ a month or so. While I really want to complete the 5K, I also don't want my knee screwed up long-term. There's always next year.

Shitty part is that it was feeling great/perfectly fine a few weeks back but then I spent 3 days straight on my feet with a friend in boston and I feel like that set me back a month or so. But again, lessons learned to not push myself too hard.

Do you use a face mask in winter? Helps a lot with retaining heat, especially with cold air.

I wear one of my son's Army face masks when I go for a walk.

It offers a lot of flexibility. When it's a little warmer I keep it down around my neck. When it's very cold I pull the back of it up over the back of my head and the front over my mouth and sometimes my nose. I have to make sure it doesn't steam up my glasses.

Yes, I keep my face covered . That DOES help, but not completely.
I’m not letting it stop me!
Giving up is not an option!Laugh
