Back at the gym, doing very light workouts for now and riding my bike on the trainer inside the house (that is driving me nuts, I hate it, want to go back to normal riding outside!!!!!)

Well, after being away from running for the past 7 months, I am getting closer to being back. I hurt my knee in January and I didn't go to the doctor ( I am hard headed and don't like doctors). I just figured I strained something and I would just give it time to heal. Well, after 6 months of hearing me complain, my wife finally talked me into seeing a therapist who is a friend of mine. Well, after my initial assessment, he believed it was my medial meniscus that was giving me problems. So we met a few times and did some exercises and worked my leg and knee. I met with him again this morning, and my knee is looking good. He wants me to test it by doing some running this week. Hopefully it will go well and I can get back to running some 5ks and just headed back down that road.
Almost two weeks since the last post? Looks like the average weight of the website is going up some..
Speaking of, things got a little out of control with me the last month due to life events, so I'm back in the gym, trying to knock off the 6 pounds I gained. Went twice this week, plan on hitting the range tonight and working out again tomorrow. Yesterday was a bunch of relatively high weight work, trying to get some muscle back to help shed the pounds..
1.22 miles in 11:19. I haven't run in awhile - things got busy, it was always 80°, etc. I started to put on a little weight - enough that I noticed my belt felt differently but nowhere near enough to go one loop larger (one inch), but that was enough to make me want to get back to running.
It was 70° when I ran tonight which was fine.
It's over 100 degrees in Texas on a daily basis during the summer, so I either do a 40 minute walk or a 40 minutes kettle bell workout (The Art of Strength Providence) and flexibility exercises, and additional weights. The weights are not meant to bulk, but kettle bells get the heart rate up more than a walk - it's high intensity, and then a minute rest, followed by high intensity.
Did it yesterday. I try to do something 5X per week.
