This weekend I made the right decision. Then I made the wrong decision. Then I made the right decision. It is pretty typical for me. I am still feeling the effects of that unplanned pendulum swing that I took while rappelling at Horsethief Butte last Sunday. So, all week I drove to work, didn't take any walks during lunchtime and did not swim laps at the local pool. I really missed these activities. After the navigation practice on Thursday it became clear that I should not go up to Timberline with our team for the Snow Field Session. I missed this even more. At times I notice improvement in my leg. However, it is hard to stay off my feet, which I should be doing. Especially when I have flowers that my neighbors gave me that I wanted to get into the ground. Whenever I cook or iron my shirts, I'm on my feet. I did resist the temptation to mow the lawn and wash the car. I did spent time just sitting in the easy chair, just watching out the window. Perhaps recovering from an injury is like climbing up a scree slope, give yourself credit for the two steps up and don't lose faith when you slide back one.
