I have been a bit of a wimp the last week or two re pushing boundries with my bad knee, but then I suddenly thought, "I walked around Mt Maunganui a couple of weeks ago, i am not an invalid!" Granted, to walk around The Mount probably takes an uninjured person about 45 minutes and it did take me an hour and a half, and with the aid of my hiking stick. I did sit down a lot.
So? So... I went for a bicycle ride yesterday, just to prove that I could do it.
Every time i came to even a slight rise, I had to get off the hired bike and push it because that was when my knee sort of did hurt. I was kind of embarrassed to let others see me doing this, but the pride of being able to even ride the bike in the first place soon overcame any feelings of embarrassment.
I still can't do breast-stoke or over-arm in the water. I can only swim on my back which is a bit of a downer but, hey, there's always next week...
Up and at 'em!
