It’s inevitable really. The fact that eventually when you train/work out intensely you will eventually become injured. Last night I was lying on the couch minding my own business when I felt it. That twinge feeling like I hurt myself.
I had worked a full 8 hour shift and been on my feet all day long. I had not worked out since the day before when I ran the 8 hilly miles.
Why does it feel like I overextended my knee?
So today I rested as best as I could. Which meant no work out. I am seriously pissed off about that. I guess I could just use this time to think about how to NOT injure myself.
But first I went and saw Hunger Games with Carmat…
We sat in the front row so I could prop up my leg. The E in rice, elevate. I’m glad I read the book, I think it was a little confusing for Carlo. I think if they would have had Katniss’ voice explaining things during the games like she does in the book it would have been easier to understand.
Then we hit up our fave for lunch.
Off to do more of the RICE…
I was thinking I would take 2-4 days off. Play it by ear until I feel better.
Do you have any tips on RICE-ing?
