Thursday, April 17, 2008

Now I know what mornings are like when I'm at work. Finals are in 2 weeks. Got yard work, a mellow spin, and clinical physiology on the schedule for today.

We heard from the claims agent about our moped driver. The police used the "clues" left behind at the scene to find his work/home address and phone numbers. Apparently he's not answering his phone but he works for the U like we do. According to his boss this guy frequently comes to work drunk and has not been to work for a couple of days. What kind of ship do they run up at the U? We're still hoping that he has some sort of insurance or assets that will offset our costs. Our guess is a guy that comes to work drunk is probably not going to have much of either. This is turning into one of those stories that will be pretty funny at a later point in time. I'm up to wearing my orthotics 4-6 hours at a time and my knees/feet/ankles are feeling quite different. My knee pain has slowly disappeared over the last couple of days, but my legs and feet feel really tired. It's going to take another week or so for my body to get somewhat comfortable with normal alignment. The Specialized foot beds he tweaked for me are great. My pedal stroke feels more natural and the strain on my left knee is pretty much gone. Since this blog is really about getting pictures of E up for the family I'll be posting some later. Katie and E are enjoying the sun. Time to go join them.

Elijah 24 hours after le royale face plant

E's rocking the hamburger lip and nose today. He was running in the driveway with his hands over his head and kissed the concrete. Also, some dude ran into our car with a moped and drove off on Tuesday leaving behind his scooter registration, warranty paper work, and $1100 in damages to our Outback. We should find out more from the police any day now.

I picked up my custom foot orthotics yesterday. It's going to be a few weeks before I can tell how much they'll help me. Right now I'm just breaking my feet in and getting used to normal foot/ankle/knee alignment. They also customized my body geometry footbeds for free. Apparently they're decent foot beds that just needed a few tweaks. Due to time issues surrounding insurance and school stuff I won't be able to test them out on a ride until tomorrow. I know it's kind of nerdy to post these pictures but I feel like I'm documenting the end of 1+ years of knee pain.

Another quality day at the homestead. Elijah entertained. Yesterday the ferrous took me up City Creek to the snow line. Today it pulled Elijah around the hood. Katie works today and we don't want her to.

Got the molds of my feet done today. 1st generation footbeds next week. More hours on the ferrous. More hours on the books.
