Please Explain This
Maybe I shouldn't ask for an explanation. Maybe I should just be grateful...
But two days ago, my knees were feeling ok but a bit creaky and still in recovery from some overtraining in preparation for a bike race in early May that never happened. I'd been babying my knees along for about five weeks.
As a particpant in a charity ride, I cycled 150 hilly miles this weekend. I was a bit fearful that my knees would not be up to the challenge, but they felt good both days. In fact, with only a few slight twinges here and there, they feel better today than they did on Friday.
It does leave me wondering what the best combination of rest and activity is. Sometimes too much rest makes you feel worse than going out, hopping on the bike and giving it the old heave ho. On the other hand you don't want to be a damned fool. Anyone have this issue figured out? I sure don't.
