    Surgery day

    I got my knee "cleaned up" today, meaning cutting out broken cartilege. My initial impression is very positive. The snap, crackle, pop seems to be gone already.

    I think the danger for me is going to be in the next few weeks. I really want to jump right back to the 200 miles a week that I was doing a few months ago, instead of the 20 miles I was doing last week at the bottom of the downward spiral of pain/inflamation.

    Despite the uncertainty, and the chance of overtraining, at least there is hope--to ride pain free.

    Yep, I'll have to listen, but I don't have to like it when they tell me to stay off the bike, or go slow. Well, I hope it worked out for you. Are you able to ride pain free now?

    p.s. The UO is a neat old frame; I love those funky lugs.

    I have the same mind-set when it comes to injuries. From my experience, I do best when I take things slow and steady, building up on a regular routine. I've re-injured myself too many times in the past to forget the lesson now.

    Hope all goes well, and you recovery fully and quickly.
    I reserve the right to be wrong at any time. :D
