It might be a couple days before I am able to do any kind of workout routine. There was a snow storm in Michigan over the weekend which dropped about 9 inches of snow. I went snowboarding for the first time this year at Mt. Holly. My skill level is starting to improve and my confidence is growing. I was on the slopes for about 5 hours and had a great time.
The next morning I could feel a little stiffness in my legs and back but nothing too bad. What got me was when I went to my buddies ugly Christmas sweater party on Saturday night with my girlfriend. We were leaving the party and got stuck in a driveway. My job was to push my Ford Fusion out. As soon as I got down to start pushing on the bumper I slipped and smacked my knee on the cement. I did not feel it at the time because my friend and I had indulged in a couple adult beverages. We ended up getting the car out and my girlfriend drove us home.
The next morning I got out of bed and almost took a dive. The knee had swollen up. It hurt like hell and still has some puffiness today. So it looks like I am going to be taking it easy today and not working out at all. No need to injure it and being set back a week when taking a day off would be the smart play.
