Default Another ‘skating hurts’ thread

Was at the practice session at my local rink on a Sunday (it’s a session for ‘competent’ skaters which scares away al the beginners so there’s space to try a few new things without worrying about wiping out the hen party celebrating nearby).

I was trying a mapes turn and for some reason got the toe stop bit wrong, not the landing which is usually where I fall over. Missed the toe stop, turned my ankle and collapsed like Bambi resulting in sprains to 3 or my 4 lower limb pivot areas (ankle ligaments and both knee medial ligaments). An impressive array of lower limb injuries from one fall.

Luckily fairly minor sprains so should be back skating in a couple of weeks, and a good excuse to ‘work’ from home for a few days.

I’ve always thought I could injure something trying new manoeuvres, just didn’t realise it would be multiple things at the same time

Two weeks on and one knee is back to normal (although 'normal' is not great for this particular knee after 12 previous surgeries!).

Ankle is a little stiff but definitely a lot better.

Other knee is problematic, full tear of the medial ligament means a 6-12 week recovery, although I should be able to skate/run in a couple of weeks.

Looks like a delay to the new season of refereeing as well from this. Oh well.

I really wasn't worried until you got to this part.

RESISTANCE IS FUTILE

I have been having rough spots myself. When I started biking, I went from 218, to 208. Then wandered back up to 218. Then I had some trouble with my Arginine pills. These pill kind of keep me alive without being on blood thinners and going to the doctor all the time. Well, I had to back the dose down, and I got a blood clot in my left leg. I think this one came with a Pulmonary Embolism too, as my heart rate watch started registering about 10bpm too high. I have been working some easy hour rides. The pain and swelling from the leg is gone, and my HR dropped 8 bpm, so, looks I am getting out of that tunnel.

It kind of sucks that I am still up at 218. It was about 2.5 years ago that I was happily 200, and 18 lbs jumped on me outta nowhere. I felt like crap warmed over twice. While I still hate having the weight on me, my biking make me feel good enough that I am not hating life. When the weight first hit me, I felt terrible. At least now, I am carrying it well. I don't feel THAT bad. But, better to lose it.
