Sore knee... ride or call my Doc?
did a 2 week cycling vacation, it was great but came back with
a sore left knee. Doc said to give it a week. Tuesday I hit the gym
hoping for some instant rehab. My muscles were great, but my knee
is still sore. When I stand up it feels like the femur is not being held firmly and sags just a bit. While it is getting better, it is happening slowly.
I had wanted to do a ride manana, nothing dramatic, just 30 miles near the coast.
But I wonder if that is foolish, I also wonder if I should be going to the gym right now. Btw, what I am doing there is just leg extensions and hamstring curls for the legs.
So... can I ride if I take it easy? Should I try to get in to see my Doc today (I go
to a clinic that is great that way, I can usually see someone the day I call if I want to). Or maybe just hit the gym again on Sunday?
