OK amount of sleep, ~7 hrs, tossing and turning frequently
Patellar pain following 5/4's workout, definite inflammation. Looks like the knees still aren't ready for squats. Slight pain continued into today, especially climbing stairs.
PLAN - back off weighted lower body exercises and continue stretching and strengthening the patellar tendon. The sports med doc told me the inflammation was more or less gone, but I had to focus on strengthening the tendon. It sounds like that's exactly what I need to continue doing, strengthening the tendon and focusing on lower body stretches. Will be posting some questions on one or more of the PMenu forums regarding questions around programming and recovery.
