The mind is willing

But the body isn’t?

I have a weak right-knee that I sprained badly many years ago in a basketball game. Even though I’ve strengthened the thigh muscles above it as recommended by the doctor then, at times it would just give way randomly, especially when I’m doing a lot of twisting motions. The feeling is like suddenly you are only standing on one leg and you lose your balance completely.

Last night, it gave way whilst I was jumping around to some frenetic drum-n-bass music. I fell backwards. If it wasn’t for this dude who caught me, I would have landed on my ass. It still feels sore now.

Would this be a sign that I should stop clubbing? Stop clubbing!? NEVER!

Ok, maybe I should just try to curtail my natural enthusiasm whenever I hear a good tune. Maybe. 😉

    cupcakequeen: I quote you this post from a while back – it’s all about the music and me loving it. 🙂

    MagC: arthritis!? Choi! Just a weak damaged joint. And changing dance moves … what dance moves do not require the moving of the legs and feet, except nodding ur head? 😉

    Hijackqueen: it doesn’t hurt that much when it “goes” these days (feeling like cracking a knuckle) but it was excruciating when it got sprained those years ago.

    give up clubbing? no way. you’re still in your prime!
    just wear a knee brace under your jeans 😛
    BTW are you sure it wasn’t the alcohol rather than your knee?
