Scaly Freak Posted January 13, 2018 Author Report Share Posted January 13, 2018 Challenges update (sort of): So between being scared that something very bad had happened to my knee, stressed about thoughts of all the squat workouts I'd be missing out on, and in general feeling very sorry for myself, copious amounts of sugar were consumed. In the form of fruit juices, cookies, ice cream, and candy, and there may or may not have been some single malts in the mix as well. (Only three!) Basically the only thing I managed to stick with was avoiding soda. Yay me... somewhat. Tomorrow is weekend and reboot time. New morning, new goals, and new workout routine while the leg heals. The rehab exercises take 30-40 minutes in the evening and are a serious workout - they weren't kidding when they said the purpose of the rehab is to build leg muscles. Lots of pilates-inspired leg lifts on my back and on my stomach, modified wall sits, and lots of stabilization exercises with resistance bands. It is also a bit painful - rehab hurts! I am now going to go wrap an ice pack around the knee and placate Self-Indugence reward myself for completing the rehab exercises by playing Tyrrany for the rest of the evening. 5 Quote The Great Reading Thread of 2023 “I've always believed that failure is non-existent. What is failure? You go to the end of the season, then you lose the Super Bowl. Is that failing? To most people, maybe. But when you're picking apart why you failed, and now you're learning from that, then is that really failing? I don't think so." - Kobe Bryant, 1978-2020. Rest in peace, great warrior.
