It's the first day of may and it's 26 deg. and snowing. Wow.
I don't know what's going on with my the back of my knee. This kind of came out of nowhere. It hadn't ever bothered me while running. I had felt a discomfort so slight I didn't pay much attention to it a couple of times over the last couple of weeks. Tuesday night and last night it got worse untill it was painfull to walk. It only hurts to straighten my leg. I took some ibuprofen and it got a lot better last night. This morning it was a lot better. I think I could even run on it but I decided I had better not.
PM I ran 1 mile with my son in 9:13. My knee has been a bit sore all day when I walk but when I ran with him it didn't hurt at all. I decided to go 2 more miles in 8:30 and 7:56 and it felt great. I guess I'll see if it swells up again tonight. If it dosen't I'll try some more miles tomorrow. I'm not even sure it's a running injury. It could be from biking. I've been working more on power through the whole pedal stroke and pulling up on the pedal puts a lot of strain on this area. I did bike on both of the last two days when it got bad. I never seem to get injuries from cycling. Unless I crash. So I didn't really consider that. We'll see what happens tomorrow.
