roadrunnertwice: Wrecked bicyclist. Dialogue: "I am fucking broken." (NeverAsBad - Fucking broken)
I went to my first physical therapy appointment today!

One of my long-term aspirations is getting better at realizing when I need to ask for help, and I feel like this was at least a step in the right direction even though it took me two damn months to get the clue. Long story short, I fucked up my hip area on my right side back in August, when Ruth was teaching me to swim. (Which I meant to post about but can't remember if I ever did.) Pro-tip, don't try to kick full force the first time you use flippers, the resistance/acceleration curve is completely different and you might wreck your dumb ass.

Anyway, ever since then, I've had dull, aching pain in that right hip and thigh when I move them in formerly totally normal ways, and it's been dampening my enthusiasm for walking, running, and biking. I finally accepted on Tuesday that it wasn't going to go away on its own or with amateur trigger point massage, and remembered I had solid testimonials from multiple friends (who have my same insurance) for Pedal PT down on Clinton.

They got me in today, and I already feel a ton better. Turns out half of my pelvis was rotated forward. Guess that was a heck of a flipper kick.

If you pass the rabid child, say "hammer down" for me.
