Today was the first day I’ve commuted to work on my bike in weeks. Â I’ve been nursing my right knee due to an injury and the time off appears to have helped. Â I took it really slow today, probably never cresting 10 MPH (except going downhill) but didn’t feel much pain in my knee at all. Â There were a few times in my ride where the twinges got to be a bit much – a little too close to actual pain – so I just slowed down to a snail’s pace until the twinges subsided. Â And for most of the ride, I was fine.
Hopefully this will continue. Â I’m planning to drive to work tomorrow, mostly due to severely inclement weather and the need to give my knee a day off. Â (Of course, I’m not sure how standing and lecturing for almost four and a half hours qualifies as a day off for my knee, but whatever. Â That’s what I get paid to do.) Â Hopefully on Wednesday I’ll be back on my bike.
