Monday 21st and Wednesday 23rd 1 hour BJJ Wednesday afternoon 2.7mi run 30min 29s 158bpm AVG HR. 20 mins stretching Thursday 2 miles walk, I planned lifting but I didn't have time with other tasks taking priority. Friday 2.7mi treadmill 30min 2s 151 BPM AVG HR. 20 minutes stretching Running feels like it's improving. Wife had a horrible cold which got worse, then Saturday covid test came back positive. The rest of the week of was negative, so second time in 7 weeks With my wife unwell I thought it best to drop all workouts and not go out in case I spread it prior to a positive test. I had no symptoms throughout the week, but my wife has really unwell and 9 days later after the main symptoms subside the tests show negative. She is better now although taste is still coming back and fatigue seems to be still there. A week of "rest" seemed to be the right option for me, i.e. no BJJ, light running and light lifting. Without any signs of the virus and my wife symptoms clearing I went on the treadmill on Wednesday. 2.26 mi 26min 4s 143bpm AVG HR. I kept it easy to break back into it. Thursday Changed the workout up a bit Barbell row 15kgx10, 25kgx10, 35kgx10, 45kg 3x10, 35kgx10, 25kgx10, 15kg x10 Lateral raises 10kg 3x10 Curl 28kg 3x12 Push ups 3x10 Friday 3.1mi treadmill 35mins 147bpm AVG HR. 20 minutes stretching. A few walks over the weekend. Monday all clear in the house so back to it. 1 hour BJJ Drilling kimura from half guard Shied. Tuesday Dropped my son off at school and was late back for meeting, no problems I can run for miles, looking whilst crossing the road and my knee goes "pop". Hmmm that didn't feel like the normal pops, but no pain, nothing unusual, walked the rest of the way. A few hours later- swelling and pain! From what I can tell it's a mild MCL tear, pain on the inside but knee is stable. I've been using the ice bath a few times a week for recovery, so I got into that again, it helped a lot. Decided no more BJJ, running or anything with leg work this week. A day later is feels mildly better, I can walk, but after being stationary for a while it takes some time to unstiffen. Walked 2 miles at a moderate pace, but any flexion on turns I could feel the pain on the inside. I have my trusty knee strap on and keeping an eye on it over the week. Wednesday no leg work day. Barbell row 15kgx10, 25kgx10, 35kgx10, 45kg 5x10, 35kgx10, 25kgx10, 15kg x10 Curl 28kg 12,15,15,15,15 Ice bath and gentle stretching in positions that do not stress the MCL.
