further knee adventures

Right. i haven’t blogged in ages.  or two weeks.  which is ages for a blog that is about four weeks old.  basically, my knee is a little screwed.  i’m not 100% sure of the exact scientific term but it’s broadly to do with the fact that the knee bone is connected to the pelvic bone via a nerve that runs down to my toe.  The long and short of it is i can’t run for three weeks, which presents a little problem vis a vis the marathon.  I’m trying staying positive and assuming i can still make it until someone (with dr. before their name) tells me otherwise. but it’s a little difficult, not to get down.

i’ve got some weird little exercise to do to help with the recovery, even went and bought a big yellow ball on which to do them.  it currently sits in the sports equipment corner of the house but will soon need to be relocated somewhere less obtrusive.

tonight, i mostly spent the evening having my knee shaved by Claire in preparation for some “taping” by the physio tomorrow.  i’m not sure exactly what he’s going to do to it, other than tape it.  i just nodded.  and shaved.  so that’s my news for now.  hurried, obliged, but posted.  i feel a little better, and a little less guilty already.
