Get up, get out.

During the past week I have had:

  • humidity induced swelling in surgically repaired right knee
  • tendinitis on big tow of same
  • Pulled left hamstring from a trip while running
  • residual soreness in left foot from standing on bike too much during previous week

Riding the bike seemed to aid in making them all go away or feel better.

There is no better medicine than exercise even when overexertion is the cause of the injury.

All things in moderation,
but never sit for too long.

P.S. - Tiger Balm patches and stretching is the *ish.

P.S.S. - Limping up and seeing the set medic smoking, then telling him (hamstring) with his response being to point at your quadriceps is not confidence inspiring.
