Agh! Hate it when I have a mild injury

Wednesday, March 21, 2012

I'm starting to get frustrated. My left knee is most likely suffering from tendonitis or bursitis...which ever, its the same prognosis - rest, limited use, ice and advil. Well, it is really putting a damper in my exercise...of course I keep thinking it is alright and push. Saturday I played 9 holes of golf carrying my bag - that was after I had run for the 1st time in a month on Friday - now, I haven't really walked/hiked or ran and its Wed. evening.

Hmm? who to blame - oh yes, myself. See when you point your finger always remember 3 more fingers are pointing back at you!

Plan: no 2 days in a row; ice religiously and take the advil.
Fill exercise in with weights/abs -

Writing it down helps to focus on the fact that it wont get better if I don't take care to rehab it correctly. emoticon

    I am just getting over the same injury. The ice really helped and a wrap just below the knee. Don't overdo it too soon. emoticon

    I'm in a similar position. The inside of my right calf has been bothering me since I twisted my foot juuuust a little on Feb. 26. After walking 3 miles in the park yesterday (with inclines), it really hurt. I didn't walk at all today. In fact, I left work early and went to bed to get off my feet.

    Like you, I'm icing and taking Aleeve. We'd better do it now because we plan to walk together. (Check for an email from me.)

    FEEL BETTER!!!! Take care of it now so it won't become a major burden later.

    Hang in there! You'll be back at it in time. I had to learn that same lesson when I got sick. If you overdo, you'll set yourself back further so try to be patient.
