This hasn't been my week. Yesterday it rained all day. I did manage to get a walk and actually got my steps for the day in but I wasn't happy. It was dreary and I wasn't able to walk as long as my body needed to. Then this morning I twisted my knee in a really freakish way while getting into my car to go to work. The pain was horrific and I could barely walk all day. A student had to help me walk across the parking lot to get into school, and, bless him, he took care of me during first hour (he is in the class I visit first hour) by getting me a bag of ice and helping me put up my leg. It was a weird moment for me because he gives me so much grief during class and yet was so kind today when I was in pain.
Anyway this was suppose to have been my day to walk home from school but due to the knee injury I ended up phoning my daughter to come get me. Early. She even came into the building to help me get to the car. That is how much pain I was in. I came home and continued to ice my knee off and on and fell asleep at some point. When I woke up she and I had to go to a meeting at college and it was difficult walking into the building but I made it. By the time we returned DH was home and now I will try using a heating pad on it. I am subbing tomorrow for our school secretary so I will be sitting most of the day. That will give me a chance to rest that leg but I hate giving up my steps 2 days in a row. It puts me so far behind on my goals. I look at my goals on my Start Page and I realize that I have to put in some serious work to reach some of my short-term goals as the dates are sneaking up on me pretty quickly. This injury couldn't have come at a worse time.
