    The goal was to do a 3 x 12, but after the 2nd interval my knee started feeling a little unhappy so I quit and finished up the morning with some stretching. I talked to the ortho yesterday just inq... read more

      Patience, Lad! Take a vacation to someplace warm and tropical to sit on a beach with lots of cool, refreshing beverages at hand! That is my suggestion! :)

    good Endurance spin 13.68 mi 00:46 18.0mph pace

    Nothing too difficult today. Started and finished really easy with a moderate 30-minute interval in the middle. Doing what I can to keep this leg loose.

  4. RUN
    good Zwift - 4 x 10 min intervals 21.42 mi 01:10 03:15 pace

    Felt good while doing them, but I have a feeling I'll pay for that effort later today.

  5. VELO
    good Virtual Mountains 15.54 mi 00:50 18.7mph pace

    Easy-to-moderate effort up the Zwift mountain course. Could barely walk this morning after a hard day of standing and walking around yesterday. Sure wish this leg would start coming around...

  6. VELO
    good Easy spin before PT 7.41 mi 00:30 14.8mph pace

    Super-mellow spin before heading off to what turned out to be 90 minutes of PT. More spinning, a load of exercises, and finished off with a quite long dry needling session. My lower leg is a mess! ... read more

    good Zwift - London 20.01 mi 01:03 19.0mph pace

    Easy to moderate spin around London this morning. Pushed it a little up Box Hill but overall kept it reasonable. Hope that small effort doesn't come back to bite me later today.

  8. VELO
    alright Mountain Spin 7.2 mi 00:45 9.6mph pace

    Decided to try a light to moderate effort spin yesterday afternoon mostly to see how I would feel this morning. Chose a mountainous route on Zwift for my riding pleasure. While things were feeling ... read more

    alright Easy Lunch Spin 00:30

    Wanted to work some more tightness out of my leg. It didn't work this time. Feeling worse off now than before. Grrrr. Perhaps it is because I am past due for my Tylenol and Motrin doses. :(

  10. VELO
    good Easy spinnin' the junk out 4.9 mi 00:30 9.8mph pace

    Took to the Zwift mountains this evening for an easy spin up the hill. My knee was feeling pretty tight tonight so hoping the spin will work out whatever is going on in there. Back at it tomorrow!

  11. VELO
    alright Easy post-MRI results spin 11.2 mi 00:45 14.8mph pace

    Super easy spin this morning to work a little fluid out of my knee. Well, no surgery appears indicated so that is good news. Impression from the MRI is: 1) Intact ACL repair (whew!), 2) Mild irregu... read more

      Well, at least you have a diagnosis now so you can do workouts that won't irritate (hopefully) and get back to running again. You have the half with C1 coming up...

      That is good news! I have to say, as a sufferer of frequent runner's knee, I am surprised by how painful this has been for you. Maybe due to prior knee surgery(s), but wow! I can usually fall back on swimming when all else is failing. Might I suggest swimming with paddles and a leg float? And no pushing off of the walls.

      I did think about the swim buoy, just didn't that day. Might need to rethink that strategy.

    Same drill as yesterday, but upped the intervals to 3 x 4 min. My knee was pretty sore this morning, but not sure if that was due to the spin or the hike through the woods with the Cub Scouts. I am... read more
