I don't know whether ankle weights would be a good idea for me or not - toyed with the idea. I can be walking and everything feels fine and without any change in stride, no bumps in the road, no dips, my knee just collapses and hurts like hell - like it's almost on fire. I don't know if weights would strengthen that knee or make it worse. But you are right I probably wouldn't hit myself in the head with them. I wonder if the driver in the car saw the expression on my face when I did that. It had to have been comical.
I am known to do WTF type stuff too. Thursday, the jar of jalapenos fell out of the fridge and smashed. I picked up the pieces and threw them in the trash. Then proceeded to use my fist to smash down the garbage and cut the heck out of my hand and bleed like a stuffed pig.

We should form a club...:lmao:. Is your hand okay?

Yes. Bandaged it up really well. Took it off yesterday because it was falling off from all the hand washing. Airing it out will help with the healing hopefully.
My father used to tell me that washing the dishes would help heal cuts like that. Washing the dishes was the cure all for everything in my family if you were dumb enough to believe it. .

I’m carrying cases full of empty Corona bottles the full distance to the dumpster and then a dead lift to throw them in. Very aerobic.
I do squats with a full case of Corona in each hand...bulking up.

The worst of it is on my knuckles so trying to not bend my fingers and opening the wound again has been hard.

Yikes - I KNOW that hurts. Someone else should do all your household nonsense for the say the entire month of May. Hope you feel better.

Well, I reopened it changing my bed sheets so a bandage is back on. I actually like doing housework. I used to be anti-cleaning because it felt like I was just polishing a turd. Our furniture was old and crappy. The carpet was old and crappy. I just gave up. Now that we redid our bathrooms, kitchen, and living room and it looks awesome, I like keeping it that way. No more worrying about unexpected guests. My house is always clean!!

Ha! I'd be milking that hand for as long as I could safely get away with it. Course I'd be milking it with myself but....

Eh... it's really only one finger that is messed up. Unfortunately it is my favorite finger. At least it is on my right hand and not my left because I am a lefty.

Middle one? That's my favorite. It's ambidextrous too which comes in handy when I'm driving.
I can only give a proper one finger salute with my left hand. The right one needs help. I have to hold the other two finger down to get the middle one up. :jet:

SG have you tried a knee brace for when you walk ? It might prevent the issue you are having.

No sorry, but I bet google will be of assistance. My knees required replacement 5 years ago. They work well except for any rapid lateral movement.

I walked all of Solomon’s yesterday. Maybe I’ll walk at SM College today. Weather is beautiful for it.

It was beautiful after the rain moved out. I was stuck in the attic doing some rerouting of the security system cables and adding an electrical outlet. When the pounding of the rain stopped, I crawled out and couldn't believe how beautiful the sky was.
