A hurt'n knee

The knee has been a bit weird recently; I'm not sure how to describe it. Weak. Feeble. Hollow. Aching. Sore. Tired. Just walking around the house today it felt wonky, and I was careful how I was moving. I wasn't looking forward to spin class.

Lots of good stuff in class, but I couldn't do any of it. My left leg started to hurt and I realized it was doing all the work, what little work was being done. It's like I had no strength to put into the pedals. Max rpm before things started squeaking was 110 rpm. One leg drill got actively painful very quickly so I stopped. It hurt where the knee cap meets up with the quads. Needless to say, not a lot of fun tonight. I was on the bike for 1.25 hrs, but it barely counts as aerobic exercise.

I'm glad all this is happening now, on the off season. I've got to believe the various therapies will make a difference and things will start getting better.

  5. hmmm sounds like runners knee. Hope you get it sorted out. What worked for me is wall squats, to strengthen the quad going into the knee. My chiropractor at the time prescribed them. It took time though. Good thing it's the off season. Take care.
