So last summer my wife and I bought a house and did a boatload of renovations, which, along with a trip to Holland and a bunch of other stuff, seriously cut into our cycling time. This year we're committed to getting a serious amount of riding in, so in the off season, I watched my diet, got a lot of additional exercise in, rode the trainer some, rode a bit in bad weather, lost 16 lbs (soon to be 20), all to prepare for this summer.
But now that the nice weather is here, it turns out that my left knee is F'd, and I have no idea why. It hurts when I bend over to pick something up. It hurts when I cross my legs. It hurts when I ride, whether spining or climbing out of the saddle. It pretty much hurts (randomly) whenever I'm awake.
I guess it's time to go see a specialist. Talk about annoying. Maybe I can get in there with a little superglue and get things sorted.
