Last time I checked, only frogs are supposed to move their legs like that... whatever it is, I hope you don't have to stay out of the pool long.

I'm still hoping for some strain, no damage.

You really need to be a little more optomistic in your poll choices.

you could put "yes, not meniscus" that would cover strain

Yeah, sorry, it's late. I'm off to bed. Nite, Stud.

Since I am recovering from a Meniscus Tear, I hope you don't have any damage. IMO, Meniscus is the least of all common knee problems.

Good Luck.

I voted for #3...we still have that grude race pending you know :lolup: .

Seriously though, I hope it's nothing serious. :smooch: Although, I still say it gives you lots of time to work on your BACKSTROKE!

Yeah if I'm injured I'll just have to re-focus on Fly...then shame you and Queenie next season!

Where's the no serious damage at all option Rich. I'm with Barb in that your choices all seem kind of pessimestic now. Of course choice 4 is always a good choice anyway I guess LOL! Good Luck with the MRI results...I'm keeping my fingers crossed for you Rich!

You may shame them but you'll still be wallowing in my wake. :bouncing:

But seriously, I hope it's something only needs a little rest and PT.

I'm not scared. Remember, I have seen your fly in real life.

Stud,

I hope the news was good, i.e. just rest and PT. Best of luck on your recouperation. We breaststrokers need to stick together to ward off those 'unhuman' flyers (though my fly is getting much better, it still feels unhuman:lmao: ). On the plus side of sticking with fly, you will bulk up those manly shoulders of yours :thhbbb: .

Well sorry to disappoint some of you but the scans were all negative-no meniscus damage.

Looks like a little strain or possibly tiny tear that is healing to a tendon or ligament etc ( an undetectable as the MRI's only 95% accurate). So PT, NSAIDs, lay off breast, which I'll do totally for a month or so no meets up ahead anyhow.
Thanks for all the support.

Very good news :applaud: . Practice fly for a while so you can rest your knee and show 'them' you are a master of all strokes, not just breaststroke. :groovy:

Fly has tweaked a muscle in the middle of my back it's a real nuisance but I hack along...I think moderate swimming is probably the sensible thing to do until everything is feeling better.

Mastering anything takes a lifetime...I'd be happy to get a better time regards how awful I look...

Have you ever considered trying to sprint sidestroke?

You Mock. But if you were drowning, I can straddle jumpinto water and sidestroke out to you without losing sight of you, which is how it should be done. Side stroke is a valid skill to learn.
So there!

Seek out a Priest and have the evil spirits exercised from your system Floyd

exercised lol

By laying off breast I mean kicking, exactly, and racing which I have still been doing.
