    I think you're doing just right. I've already told you that I believe in movement, and that's what you're doing. Just keep that movement easy, again, just like you're doing. It's OK to let the knee hurt just a little and briefly, but don't push it at all. I've worked through a lot of injuries this way. You're very slowly coming back.

    EDIT: Sorry I'm so bossy.

    Good intervals Gina - I think that's a great way to build and makes it a little more interesting. Nice job!
