I know. Last Friday, I was cleaning out the garage with Sweetie. After three hours, it was clean(er) and we were tired. I sat down I the couch for just a minute or two. When I moved to get up, I felt three distinct pops in my right knee I buckled and fell back to the couch. Ever since, I have to be careful how I bend it. I attempted class on Sunday with mixed results. The standing series was ok - I was surprised at how strong I was ( I could actually lock it out). Once on the floor, I was useless. Left the room at fixed firm because I couldn't bend the leg at all. Last night was little better - I fell out of Tree in an awkward fashion and hurt the knee again. I was completely useless on the floor because back spasms made everything hurt. So, I left early again.
Not sure what to do. Took tonight off but tomorrow is one of my cleaning nights. Should I leave it be and simply try to work around it? Get a brace or sleeve? Take a few more days off?
I really want to take class but it might be better to rest it. I feel like I need to just go and be mindful of what I can and cannot do. If I can be really careful, I think I can do the entire class. I know this: after waiting so long to practice again, I'm aggravated that now I must deal with an injury of this sort. Time to work on acceptance again.
