First workout after injuring my knee

Tonight, I went to the gym to work out. It’s the first time I went after I slipped and injured/sprained my left knee last Thursday. My knee still bothers me, but it’s better than it was initially. I still limp, as it hurts to put too much pressure on it. I think of this keeps up much longer, I may give in and go visit my doctor for a checkup.

I could have taken the easy way out and skipped another workout tonight, but that is a bad precedent. The more workouts I skip, the momentum will decrease further. I opted to avoid cardio and any strength training that would stress my knee. I worked on upper body — arms, shoulders, back, abs. I also did those leg extension curls to work the backs of my thighs. It was a good workout, and I’m firmly back in the saddle. I’m not sure when my knee will be better. Since cardio may not be on the menu for awhile, I will have to be on my best diet behavior this week.
