Kneed for Pause

September 25, 2006

I just got back from Urgent Care. My left knee’s been feeling funny for 2 weeks now. I’m guessing as a result from playing racquetball (5 times in 2 weeks, I think). About 4 years ago, I injured my knee. Ever since, it’s never really handled moderately strenuous activities well.

I played racquetball today.  It was fun…. and a good workout too.  Will be doing it pretty regularly, I think.  We’re currently using the courts at Southwestern College, but we’re checking into using the ones on the Navy base.

September 2-4, I went on a road trip to Arizona. You’re probably expecting me to write about my trip, but I’m not going to. Rather, I’m going to explain my motives for the trip.

I didn’t go to Arizona to relax. I didn’t go to Arizona for a vacation. I didn’t even go to Arizona so I’d have a story to tell when I got back (but I do, so hah). (more…)
