Thankfully, not due to an accident, but I’m on the injured list. After months of trying to cycle it out, I’m off the recumbent due to knee pain. Some of you whom I’ve actually cycled with, know I’ve had intermittent knee pain for 3 years. It’s gotten much worse in the last 6 months. This past week, I decided it might be exascerbated(how do you spell that) by the recumbent.
With all the driving to and fro to WV, my right knee has gotten so bad that sometimes I’m unable to bear weight on it and frequently, when I bear weight, it unexpectedly results in excruciating pain. Days without cycling seem to diminish the pain. It’s the position I sit in to drive, using my right leg to press pedals for aceleration, deceleration in the car and to pedal on the recumbent! This weekend, I walked about a mile or 2 in 1/4 mile increments and the pain is less severe. Woohoo!
On another note, the colors are Stunning! WV is absolutely beautiful in the fall and the leaves are so abundant that sitting in the fields or along the trail, it feels like being in a snow-globe where the snowflakes have been replaced with leaves. I’m loving WV. The house may be done for Thanksgiving. The trusses should have been here on Friday, but we are without them right now. Perhaps before I leave in the morning, they will be here.
