I made it through the week! It was a very rough time of it, I’ll be honest. Due to my constant state of back/neck/hip pain I would like to think that I have acquired a pretty decent pain tolerance, but the fact that I’m constantly in pain has also led me to try to push through it. I couldn’t exercise very much for 5 days. FIVE DAYS! I was going insane…granted I still went for walks even though it felt like someone was trying to burn the insides of my knees off with a lighter. I lasered myself twice, borrowed Kris’ cane and even took some pain medicine. Needless to say, by Friday I was getting really annoyed with myself, so I emailed Dr. Jason and asked if I could come in for an appointment on Saturday. I went to boxing, and all things considered, it wasn’t too bad…high knees were the only thing I had a really hard time with if you don’t include the fact that I was incredibly sluggish and out of shape from being a potato for 5 days. Straight afterward I went to the chiropractor- got myself cracked back into shape and had a therapeutic ultrasound treatment done on my knee. The main thing was to check and make sure they’re structurally fine, which they are, so I’m back in the ‘work through the pain’ state of mind. I came home for lunch, then made my way out to Lake Pine with Rowena for a nice, quiet 4 mile walk. Halfway through I had a moment of awkward “I can’t put my foot down”…but I just hobbled a few steps and it went away. The rest of the afternoon I basically spent studying and doing laundry.
Yesterday was gross. The first day of spring and it was dementor weather! Bleh. Nothing special to report though. I had hoped to do some weeding/yard work but it wasn’t exactly a good day to spend outside.
Today is hopefully going to bring a great boxing class, followed by a walk and yard play.
