Collateral Damage

Well, this is a little bump in the road… The unpleasant pinging in my left knee on Thursday evening turned into increasing soreness and stiffness so that I was limping quite a bit on Friday. Ian Harrison at Physical Balance was kind enough to fit me at the end of his sports injury clinic that afternoon, and he confirmed damage to the medial collateral ligament. He has encouraged me to move as normally as possible, but told me that I won’t be running for a while. Over the weekend I’ve tried gentle swimming and spinning but both are uncomfortable, though not as much as simply walking. I’m doing regular mobility and strengthening exercises; I’m not sure what else I can do, but try to be positive that I’ll still be ready for the trip to Edmonton.
