So, I went skating yesterday and I still have pain in the right knee when stroking or doing CCW forward crossovers. I don't think there's any muscle weakness there, but the pain is so sharp it's hard not to flinch when I stroke or step down on the crossover. If I put the weight on the leg while it's straight, and bend into it (like a 3 turn) the pain's not so great, so no idea what's going on. I need an ortho who's a hockey player, but none to be found.
I called Coach Cruella and told her to take me off her list of students as I didn't think I'd be back on the ice anytime soon.
For the first time in years I'm coachless.
I don't know what to do with myself on weekends. I don't have to rush to the rink. I don't have an excuse to buy new skating clothes.
I did notice yesterday, that swizzles and a few other moves didn't cause
me problems. Also, I experimented with old-fashioned English style 3
turns, where you do the 3 turn with a straight leg through out and three
turn based on a leg swing (yes, it's tricky). So maybe, I will go back
on the ice. I could work on my back crossovers probably, and a few other
things that don't involve deeply bend right knees.
I'll still continue to post, but I'll be limited to figure skating history. While those aren't my most popular posts, at least I'll be able to keep my hand in while I'm waiting for further knee workups. (MRI next!)
