Uncle, first name Arthur, last name Itis, that's right Arthritis, has finally found out where I live and has decided to take up residence in my right knee. And me, always being the gracious hostess, greeted him with a shot of cortisone!
The doctor politely told me that I might want to hang up my running shoes or deal with the consequences of the continuos stress on my knee, that already has a number of bone spurs surrounding it. The good news, according to my friend Angie is, NOW I CAN DO SPINNING! Did I ever mention that I hate spinning? But I'm going with the positives here: 1. nothing is torn 2. it could be much worse 3. I can still workout unlike some people that are limited in their mobility. Sooooo, I ain't complaining! After 5-7 days, I will be able to get back into a normal whole body workout routine..the elliptical, spinning, swimming, walking, modified TurboKick, kickboxing...etc..etc...
Now the hard part: Really Really eating the right things for the next 5-7 days (which means I probably shouldn't be munching on these M&M peanuts as I type this). I also asked the doctor if I needed to stay home from work these next 5-7 days. His response, "uhmmmm NO." You can't blame me for trying.
