Did 32 miles yesterday, was aiming for 40 today (my personal best is 34.7). I made it to the 30 mile mark and my right knee began to have a sharp pain. I've never been particularly athletic, so it's hard for me to accurately describe. It felt buried in the knee and throughout the range of motion. I downshift, thinking I'm just putting too much torque/pressure on it, that doesn't help. I ended up walking off the bike path, dropping into my lowest gear, and lightly pedaling in the direction my wife will be coming to rescue me. No pain pedaling lightly.
I adjusted my seat two days ago, angling the nose too high and suffering the consequences. Today I adjusted it back down to where I previously had it. This is the only change I have made to the bike.
Any thoughts? I'm 5'11" and 230, I'm wondering if I just overdid it since I'm still new and did 30 yesterday.
