I don't even know what I did, but I've somehow injured my knee. This is the same knee I've hurt three times in the past, only this time it's on the back of the knee not the front. The problem is I don't know what I did to hurt it! I woke up with it a little sore yesterday morning, but nothing serious, so I went ahead and did my work out, no problems. Until that afternoon, ouch. By evening I could barely walk.
I've been icing it regularly, which helps a lot and I didn't work out today. I had to go to work though and I have a job that I never sit, but I wore my old industrial-strength brace which helped, but it's designed to protect the front of the knee not the back.
So, I'm at home, bored because I'm usually not here till later in the day, (no workout) and fretting about what if I can't exercise for awhile and I start gaining weight?! I've worked so hard and really, really don't want to go backwards! I know I'm just borrowing trouble, but these thoughts are driving me crazy, what if, what if, what if. And, now I'm just being silly, but there's 18" of fresh snow on the mesa and I really wanted to go snowshoeing this weekend!
I've had my rant and I feel better now. And I'm also hopeful that it will be all right (provided I take care of it) and I need to quit with the pity party.
