when i squat down ass to grass, with no weight, my left knee area feels like my calf is too thick to squat. i know, weird explanation. it feels like it's swollen there. and when i come up and put weight on it, it hurts like from the top of my calf thru the front of my shin. so it looks like squats are out for awhile. i think jumping rope did it. it's the only new thing i've been adding to my workout. either that or i twisted it surfing or something. dunno.
