Bummed Knee

Posted in Triathlon with tags , , , , , on February 17, 2012 by brianestover

I’m amazed that my MRI got approved so fast. I’m disappointed the first available MRI slot is on Thursday. Guess I’ll have to wait until then to see if my meniscus is torn.

Crashing your mountain bike by having the back wheel slide out and get ahead of the front end, then you pitch backward while twisting = a tad bit painful. Tried to run this morning, knee swollen and hurts like it did 3-4 days ago. Awesome. Not really since it’s hard to detect sarcasm at times online.

So fingers crossed that my pain is due to bruising from the crash and hyper-flexion of the knee and not due to soft tissue damage.

My New Child

First off congrats to Tom. He set a new PB at the Switzerland 70.3 the other weekend, almost cracking 5 hr. He also negative split the run while doing most of his running as water running. His NP/AP was 212/194. Congrats to Cory as well who finished 8th in his age group at the Boise 70.3. He moved up six spots in his age group with a negative split run. NP/AP 215/208.

I’m pretty excited. I harvested my first crop this morning. Potatoes. It’s pretty late to be harvesting a winter crop here in southern AZ. Plant late, have an unusually cool and wet spring then reap what you sow. I’m small potatoes.

Now I need to figure out what summer plants I can grow. There are four empty planters on the back porch and I’ve got two more composting.

My new kid arrived this week. Brought it home and now I have no idea what to do. I think every new parent is like that. Lucky for me, my kid comes with four instruction manuals and an informative cd. Not that I’d read or watch those. Like every proud parent, I’m posting pics of my extremely good looking kid. Takes after his Dad if I do say so myself, good looking, not the bike part. Pretty soon though, I’m going to flog my new one, like every good parent should.
