This Might Be a Problem.

29 Aug 2007 at 13:53 Filed Under:

I hurt myself quite badly on 15th January 1992 when I slipped off a 4ft wall and landed knee caps first on the hard pavement.

It took me about 5 mins of lying on the floor to clear the pain and hobble back inside.

KHS Knee

Last night I hurt my knee again, the right one, I have no idea how, but putting weight on to it to lift off a chair, for example, hurt a lot. I thought it would go away in the night.. It didn't.

I've crunched the kneecap back into place about 7 time already today, but the pain's still ther and the patella (get me with my accurate bone names) keeps levering itself back up and I have to crunch it again.

Being stupid I still went for a ride, which kinda hurt ... a lot.

28.4miles | Dry. Breezy, Cool like Autumn, Busy.

... and my sternum (yeah! again with body part names) is also really sore, I can't push down with my left hand without a pain shooting across the ribs on my right side.. weird. I probably crashed my bike in a dream or something.

I think it's your body saying "LET ME HAVE A REST!"

Of course, you will ignore it and carry on with your quest for total destruction :)

"LET ME HAVE A REST!"

that's an anagram of "EM VAETLEH STRAE!"

which is Gaelic for "RIDE FOR 400 DAYS OH BICYCLE GOD"

It's also an anagram of "ELEVATE HAMSTER", are you going to do that as well?

Reading that post made me shudder. I don't like injured knees one little bit.

You don't get a body like this by resting, young Weoeoeoeoeon

True.

If you rest you get a body which isn't so badly broken. So nothing like yours at all :)
