Embracing The Changes In Life

Image
Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Oh My Achy Knees


Full Disclosure: I have been compensated in the form of a gift card/money/coupon and/or received the product/service at a reduced price or for free. All opinions expressed are mine and honest in nature.

When I started strength training (just upper body) I started having knee pain. I know right?!? It was totally random and just out of the blue... until.... I started working with a trainer. Within minutes, she noticed that I was locking my knees - one in particular. And you guessed it, that was the knee that was bothering me. So now I make a conscious effort to make sure that my knees aren't locked. It's still a work in progress.

I was locking them doing bicep curls, lunges, squats and basically just standing and walking. I have no clue why I was doing it! And my knees are still a little sore. I really feel the knee pain when going up and down the stairs or after sitting for awhile. I'm no stranger to braces, and I was curious to give the Simple Knee Brace with Self Heating Magnetic Technology a try.




The brace was super easy to adjust - unlike braces that slip on, the Simple Knee Brace is a flat piece that uses velcro to attach around your knee. I liked that I could make it as tight or as loose as I wanted it to be.



It did take me a little while to get used to walking in it, but I think it was because in the past I've only used slip-on braces.

At first I didn't notice any 'heat', but the instructions stated it could take up to an hour. I sat down to watch a movie with Lil Man, and before the movie was over my entire knee was warm from the brace. It freaked me out at first because it wasn't warm earlier. :)

Overall, I'm pleased with the brace, and I love that it's self heating. You can check out the Simple Knee Brace here on Amazon http://www.amazon.com/Simple-Health-Knee-Brace-Adjustable/dp/B00V3L721A/?ie=UTF8&m=A22919Z4W6SWEX&keywords=knee+support

If you are looking for a self heating knee brace, I think the #SimpleKneeBrace is worth checking out.
