LIFE UPATE: total mess
Long time no talk guys, I swear I’m still alive!! I’ve been posting but nothing personal and I feel so bad for it. Thing is I’ve spent the last month or so getting my MCAT squared away, and visiting doctors.
Remember that knee pain I decided was chronic? Yeah, totally an actual injury/problem. Went to the doctor two weeks ago and he told I have a laxity in that knee and it’s because of a muscle discrepancy (which is actually really rare). He said my vastus medialis was super strong and actually stronger than all my other surrounding muscles, and that basically whats happening is that it’s pulling my tendons off the bone (kinda a shin splints sorta thing in the knee). So basically, my leg muscles are BAMFs LOL. He legit told me I was a "great anatomical example of the leg muscles" and that I had Lance Armstrong legs hahaha but he nixed running, and rx’d cycling for at least 2 months to strengthen the other muscles. Told me I’d probably not be able to run long distance as much as I want to but with continuously supplementing cycling I could still (eventually) run leisurely.
So, I guess I’m going to become a cyclist now. Bought a bike last week ($$$ omg) and have been riding. I LOVE IT! I’m planning on tearing up the bike routes with my favorite cute curly-haired collegiate cyclist as soon as he gets back from Spain too! :)
More updates from now on, I swear! <3
Isn’t he beautiful?!?! :)
