4 Pounds

That's right, there is more Willie in the world as of yesterday. 4 Pounds more to be specific.

Did you hear that left knee??? You are directly responsible for depriving poor, sick children.

Let me explain,
Assuming the human body has similar density as water and given that 1 cubic foot of water weighs 62 pounds, you can figure that my body occupied 2.87 cubic feet of space before my knee started hurting (No way I'm giving out my weight without making you do some ciphering!). Now since I'm 4 pounds heavier I'm occupying .77 cubic inches more space in this world than I was before.

There Mr. Left knee, how does that make you feel? Huh? That's .77 cubic inches that some poor, sick child could be using. Sleep well with that on your conscious! Put that in your pipe and smoke it!

Oh yea, and don't give me that crap that it's MY fault for eating all that crap lately. I've always eaten that stuff and always been able to run it off. So there is a direct link back to YOU as the root cause of this.

Ok enough of that, I know you are tired of hearing my whining.

I have discovered a wonderful new piece of equipment and the gym. The Elliptical thingy! That thing burns over 1000 calories an hour just like running but without the impact on the legs. Perfect for gimps like me. So now I've got the pool (which I did Tuesday night, 1/2 mile) and the stationary bike (did that too, 30 minutes) and the Elliptical thingy which I did tonight. That should get me through another 2 weeks of no running. I think. Maybe. Sorta.

Thanks for listening

Good for you for finding running substitutes. Only two more weeks? We should make you a countdown widget. :D Hang in there pal!
