Are you ready for this?
I went down and up the stairs!
It's the little things, I tell ya. I've been going commando (I know, TMI) the past couple days because the thought of carrying my laundry downstairs was too daunting. But today I was a freaking rock star. Not only did I go downstairs to put my laundry in, but I also put my bike together! Wooohoooo! The weird thing is, I really, really, REALLY want to go out and ride it. Kind of hard to do when you can't bend one of your knees....
Yeah, I think I did some good damage to my left knee. Turns out, I don't think that it was the IT band after all. I think I may have irritated a ligament (like the lateral collateral ligament). Weird. Anyway, I'm walking around all gimpy this week because I'm trying not to irritate it. I need to get well because I'm going nuts here not doing anything. I want to RUN!
Oh, and here is something that ya'll might not want to do before your next Ironman- don't change brands of shoes right before without having the opportunity to put more than 2 miles on them. Yeah, genius move of the week. My feet are SO SORE! I had noticed that the new Mizuno Wave Runners hurt the outside of my feet when I was on the elliptical, but I figured it was just because when you're on that torture device your feet don't move around much. Wrong. My feet are killing me!
I'll probably be posting a lot of garbage over the next week, so feel free to ignore me. My life isn't exactly full of excitement right now. Sit around, eat, waste time on the internet, walk around, decide that it hurts to walk around, sit around, repeat.
But now I think I'll do something to loosen up these muscles... hot tub time!
Enjoy your days everyone!
