Usually, I take Aleve before I go to the gym to meet with the trainer, just like I took it before I went to PT. It would just take the edge off of the knee pain so I could push myself a little more.

Today I forgot.

And I had decided to walk to the gym, which is about 1.75 miles from here. About .5 of a mile on the way, I realized that I hadn’t taken the Aleve. Too far to go back and get it and still get to the trainer on time, unless I drove, which I didn’t want to do — I need to be out there walking. So I just kept going.

Yeah, OK, won’t make THAT mistake again. It was obvious to me and the trainer what a difference that makes for me, because I was in tears multiple times — just doing simple stuff like squats or hib abduction exercises. So we did a LOT more abdominals work today than usual, since I was quite limited on the legs.

Walking home wasn’t bad, though. I expected to be in a lot of pain, but I guess since I was stretched out it was fine.

I’m so ready to be back to normal. I wonder if I’ll ever get to see normal again, though, or if I’m always going to have some pain. Which makes me wonder why the hell I did this to myself in the first place.

One thought on “Oops.”

  1. Ugh, E! No fun! But great for you pushing through and doing it. Your body has been through a lot of pain in the last couple of years… I hope “normal” is right around the corner!
