After experiencing some strange sensations in my knee this past November, I decided to take some time off the bike and instead enjoyed family time, food and fun for the holidays. Eight weeks later, back up on the bike and there is screaming from my baby cow and a puzzling "Not right" feeling from my knee.
After a careful examination, it was determined that somewhere between the squats and the long rides of my fall, I picked up a little tear in my meniscus.
For the moment, I'm doing a little sitting and spinning, trying to figure out what I want to do with this development.
Fortunately, it's beautiful out today, sunny and forties with no snow. Perfect opportunity to enjoy some time outdoors, distracted and far away from the concentrated spinning I've been performing on the trainer...even if they're playing a Law & Order marathon on tv.
During my absence from the trail, it appears someone was making me a labeled parking spot :)
Craving the taste of dirt, I cut through Bloomer for an appetizer. While I was performing the worlds slowest descent, I ran into some guys working on trail construction and they informed me that I was probably the last one to ever ride down that section of trail as they were rerouting it today (good thing I made it out of the house!).
It was nice to be treated to a slice of bike today...it's a helmeted and happy Zuul!
