My idea

I didn't see anything wrong with my idea that perhaps by continuing to work out my GOOD leg (leg curls, extensions, leg press, etc) it might somehow help the other one too. I thought it was clever and creative, showing a CAN-DO attitude. Turns out I was the only person who saw the value in my ingenuity. Glad JRP got a nice laugh out of it.

In reality, after just half a day with this cast and crutches, I realize just how much of a workout my good leg will get regardless. In fact, there is tremendous cardio potential in a crutch workout! It might be the next workout craze.

I've been removed from the field trip tomorrow and I'm pretty grateful. As hard as it will be, I'm going to spend the next three days REALLY taking it easy. I'm going to make it my job. I will load up on movies, lay in bed with the foot up, and catch up on work. Why the hell not. I need to get better as quick as I can. This will be weird. Wonder if the family can hack it??
