Today has been the first real bummer of the recovery process but it's probably a blessing in disguise. Yesterday's swelling hadn't receded by the time I got out of bed this morning and to make matters worse, there was also a 300g weight gain!
I'm not really bothered by the blip on the weight loss chart, as that is temporary and a direct result of a really nice afternoon with friends yesterday. A day of discipline today is setting me back on course.
But I'm bummed that I couldn't head out for a wee spin this morning. My knee wasn't THAT swollen, but there was enough of a spongy mass to make the decision to stay on the couch today easy. The ice pack has been on and off a few times and I'm sure by tomorrow morning my progress will be back to where it was two days ago.
And then I'll just have to slow things down.
