Okay, so I am 220lbs. I lost 5 lbs in about 10 days from a healthier diet. I walked/jogged 4x in week one and the fourth time, I noticed soreness behind my left knee (interior). I rested for 2 days, then did w2, d1. I walked/jogged 2.2 miles in 33 minutes (adding an extra jog). Well, I woke up that night with noticeable pain in the back of my left knee. Just by bending my leg, the pain stopped. I used to be a runner so I am really good about stretching after my routine, but I don't know what to do now... I want to keep up some sort of exercise but I don't want to REALLY injure my knee. I am extremely bummed out bc I really, really, REALLY love jogging. I don't want to not walk/jog for a week or two. Should I just walk for 30 minutes 3 or 4x this week? I feel like it is important to be active in some way (and please don't suggest swimming!). Any advice?? Thank you!
