Talk about ironic

Thanks for the comments and ideas in my last post regarding my knee. I am going to try and get better about my strengthening exercises and continue to use the foam roller on the ITband. I will probably stick to treadmill runs for a while and see how things go.

Is it odd that after yesterday's post, the PT from school brought up the fact that she ran into my PT yesterday? And then, when I went to Scheel's to buy a knee sleeve, I saw my PT there? WTF? Talk about ironic.

The PT from school was the one who recommended the PT I worked with in February. When she ran into him, he proceeded to tell her that I have weak legs. I laughed it off at the time, agreeing (because it is very true), and then it's been in the back of my mind all afternoon. WTF? It just bugged me that he said that to her, but I am sure he thought we were pretty good friends. What happen to doctor/patient confidentiality? LOL.

I am going to go and do some of my leg exercises and then sit out on my deck to get some sun while I do a little reading. It's 80 degrees here. Almost too warm - such a big change from the 40/50 degree weather the past week. But, ND wouldn't be ND if it wouldn't be 80 one day and then 40 the next with the potential chance of "snow" this weekend. Yeah. You read that right.

Tonight I will be heading out to see the "dueling pianos" at a local bar. I hate going out on school nights. However I have seen them before and was pretty entertained then, so it didn't take much to talk me into going.

Weird that your PT talked about your diagnosis? 80 degrees in ND? That is weird this time of year.

Wow, that weather forecast sounds a lot like Calgary's! Seriously, I'm ready for spring to be here for good already! Have fun at the dueling piano bar!

It is weird that he discussed your knee with your friend.

Thats not really cool that your PT talked about your knee!

Enjoy the beautiful weather OK?

That's pretty bad that he talked about your knee like that to someone else.

Hope your knww heals soon. Keep up the exercises.

We get the 80s tomorrow, which is great since I'm off of work :) Hope you enjoyed the dueling pianos, sounds cool.

Umm... I agree, your PT should not have said that even if she thought you were good friends.

Continue focusing on leg strengthening and things will turn around. You're doing a great job, remember that.

If weak legs is the problem, then we know the solution! Have a great weekend!!

Annette said...

80 degrees sounds awesome! Enjoy! Hope the knee improves.

By the way - are you out of school for summer already?

Marlene said...

Looks like we're actually going to have a warm weeing around here too. I can't wait to get some sun!

Have a good one and take care of that knee.

Yeah...I'm sure he figured you both knew each other. My PT talks about other peeps in the track club (oh yeah, do you know so-and-so? I see him for his IT band issues...and so on). That's a fuzzy line there isn't it though...

I'm glad the knee is feeling better.
