Mysterious Leg Problem

22 May

I teased yesterday that I had a mysterious leg problem and I am going to write about it. If you happen to know what could cause this let me know.

I will warn that beyond the break are pictures and I know some people have been disgusted by the looks of it. It isn’t pretty.

First though I will walk through the events of the past weekend (in case this helps someone figure it out).

I was off on Friday and spent some of the day cleaning and doing laundry before meeting up with JC, Liesl, Jon, my parents and JC’s parents at Raglan Road for some REALLY yummy dinner. After dinner we went and saw “How to Train a Dragon” in 3D!

Running…Part Three

26 Mar

So, since the last time I wrote about Running (Part 1 Part 2) I have had a setback. If you follow my Twitter (upper right corner of the page) you would know that already though! After our run near the Convention Center I had a couple days of bad pain in my left knee.

It made it difficult to walk, let alone run. We made an attempt a few days later and after nearly collapsing I took a seat and watched JC run a complete mile around Cranes Roost. By the time we got home it felt like my knee had exploded. JC helped me with a bag of ice and a pillow.

Running

3 Mar

Last week JC told me that she wants to run a 5k. It also happens that my friend, The Keeper of Monkeys, is running in the WDW Royal Family 5k this weekend. After some thought I decided that it would be a good thing for me to start some running.

While thinking about going running I realized that I probably wouldn’t run very well in jeans or jean shorts. Seeing that I don’t own “work out” clothes I took a trip to Wal-Mart and got some cheap stuff. Shorts, long pants and a shirt all made with some of that cool dry-tec stuff.

After much dread on my part we took our first run last night. We walked over to Cranes Roost Park at Uptown Altamonte and fought the wind. We decided that I probably wouldn’t have a heart attack and die if we took it slow and alternated some running/jogging with some walking. We ran for three minutes and then walked for four minutes. All told we ended up running for 18 minutes and had a total walk/run of over an hour (including the walk to and from the park).

I won’t lie. It was tough. Towards the end of each of the running sessions my legs were burning and I was out of breath. I did survive however!

When I woke up this morning I was pleasantly surprised by only a dull pain in my quads. I was expecting my full body to hurt. I did my normal shower and dressing routine and then drove to work. That is when it got me.

When I got out of the car I thought my legs were broken. As the morning has progressed my ankles, legs, shoulder and back have all been stiff and had a dull pain. I’m guessing this is what happens when you run for the first time since school.

I feel good about what I was able to do and plan on continuing with the support of my beautiful girlfriend. I’m not a fan of the pain, but am hoping that it will get better as I go (probably just wishful thinking). I’ll try to keep this updated on my running progress. Our next “run date” is Thursday! AHHHH

Out of Order

Out Of Order

For those of you who check my site regularly (and I think there is at least 1 of you) you know that I like to post something every day. I have about 3 blogs started that I was going to finish up this morning, but late last night I woke up with a piercing pain in my ear. My ear had been a little sore last week, but after putting some drops in it for a couple days it started feeling fine again, well, now it hurts worse than before!

Anyways, because of that, I’m out of order for now. I hope to get at least one post finished for tomorrow morning! If you have any super awesome remedies for ear aches…tell me!

One Year…

14 Jun

Today is June 14, 2008.

Today is 365 days since the day that I considered the happiest day of my life.

Today is 365 days since I looked into your eyes and told you I loved you.

Today is 365 days since I said I do.

I know you will probably never read this, but I love you. I still do…

I’m sorry that it didn’t work out as planned. I’m sorry for everything I did. I’m sorry for everything you did. I’m just sorry.

I wish you the best in everything you do.

You still have my heart…I just hope the pain goes away some day…
