Trail Run 10:00 [1] 1.3 mi (7:42 / mi)

Easy warmup jogging. Knee feeling pretty tight and sore.

Orienteering 1:00:00 [3] 6.1 km (9:50 / km)

Felt decent in the beginning as my knee loosened up. Didn't last though as it just started to hurt more and more toward the end. Was hoping that running in the woods would be less pounding and more strength work, but apparently even just the act of repetitively lifting the knee is causing too much stress.

Felt really good to be in the woods and reading a map again.

Strength/Stretching 30:00 [0]

Looked up some good knee rehab exercises and started doing them around the house all evening. Some feel really good, although a couple (especially stepping up) were still too stressful for the knee. Hopefully if I can do these consistently for the next few weeks the muscles around the knee will be strong enough to support running again without stressing the bad tendon.
