Today we went into Kelowna (town) to do some shopping. We met a really nice couple who offered to come pick us up from the resort and be our taxi for the day.
We got all our shopping done and hung out with Rob and Tera. They are really nice people.
In return, we gave them the extra lift and rental tickets and offered them one of the spare rooms for the night.
When we got back noidea72 and I headed out to Happy Valley (the beginners area). I saw how much progress he had made ☺
Tonight we caught up with another couple and had drinks.
Seemed to be a day of socialising, which turned out well ☺
This morning noidea72 and I went to our lessons. I was having a lot of fun and doing really well. The instructor mention how well I was doing aswell, We were going to do a few more runs then move over to the easier mountain run.
The next run I did, I felt a click in my knee on a turn, I slowed down and knelt into the snow to remove my boot from the board. As soon as my knee touched the snow, shooting pain straight up my leg.
The snow patrol guy came to take me to the Hut (medical centre on the mountain). I got to go for a ride on the toboggan pulled by a snowmobile ☺ that was fun at least, except when we went over a mount in the snow, then a lot of pain.
The doc said it looks like I have inflamed a tendon in my left knee, and after some rest I should be about to go back out on the board in about 48 hours.
Spent the rest of the afternoon on the couch.
Tonight hung out with Rob and Tera who decided to stay and extra day.
We got in the hot tub, which did my knee the world of good. Still pretty swollen, but no where near as much pain.
Still going to rest it tomorrow, and try getting on the board on Tuesday, taking it slow.
Oh I have also uploaded the photos so far to my Flickr account. Here: www.flickr.com/photos/lildevilette/sets/72157613223842653/
