On the sidelines
I went to skating practice this evening. I even dressed in workout clothes, and I brought my skates. I faked my way carefully through the warmup, then did the floor practice (also carefully).

But I didn't skate.

I was tempted. I bought a knee brace at the drug store, and it made my knee feel remarkably more secure. That made me more tempted. But I was concerned that it might just give me a false sense of security, which could just lead to more injury. So I talked to the coach, and she agreed it would be best if I stayed off the ice.

The seats in the ice arena stands are made of hard plastic, which was very uncomfortable for my still-bruised bum (when I fell, I landed very hard on my right "butt-bone", the part of the pelvis on which one sits). I alternated between wiggling around on the seat, attempting to elevate my knee, and just standing up to rest my butt-bone. Crazy! I felt like a mess...but at least I didn't make anything worse.

It was hard, watching somebody else skate my spot. But it was kind of nice to see what the program looks like, since I've never been able to do that before. I promised everyone I'd be back on the ice on Sunday. Hopefully I will have no problem keeping that promise.

Glad you took care of yourself. Sitting on the sidelines while you rehab is not fun. And stopping falling down and hurting your a**, opps, I meant self.

Good for you, taking care of the knee. :)

Yay! I'm so happy that you took care of my favorite Rennie.

there are rennie's in your life?

there is a ranking system for these rennie's?

what exactly comprises the final score?

how close was the second and third place finisher's in this contest?

just curious, really...

(grin) Don't go to the Michigan Renaissance Festival.

I'm greatly amused that you're a Rennie though you're not a rennie. (Another friend of mine laughed out loud at the irony also.)

Neat. :)

I've been to the Rennissance Festival a few times; it's fun. However, I didn't know that festival people called themselves "rennies" until I was doing a google search on my nickname one day, just to see what was out there. I was quite surprised, actually!

Sure, the RRS. Scores are based on technical merit and artistic impression, as well as optional music as described in Appendix 1 of the RUR rules, with the required elements selected by the Masters Technical Committee every for (4) years, subject to approval by the IKANORAH Bureau.

It was actually really neck and neck with Rennie Harris winning the hip-hop routine hands down, but he lost when he attempted a DJ routine that put the judges to sleep.
