My right knee is bothering me. I have point tenderness and some minor swelling. I can’t pin it to any specific moment but think it’s a result of all my recent activities with my recent ski outing being the final straw. I can walk and the pain is about a 2 on my 1-10 scale. So by applying RICE and skipping the runs this week I think this tweak will heal up quickly.
If all heals as I hope I will be skipping the Red Hot race next month in Moab and focusing on the Buffalo Run the end of March as my first race goal. If not then a trip to the Doc will be in short order. I need my knees for all my active pursuits so this delay is very frustrating; especially as my climbing objective for the year is starting to firm up (more on that in another post soon).
