Yeah, I knew I could handle eight hours or more of exertion. I just didn't stop to think I might overdo it on one knee. The pain only lasted about a week though; seeing a doctor wasn't about diagnosing an injury so much as getting some direction for a training program so I don't do this again.

I have this sinking feeling that I'll be stuck here for life, never able to do a truly long distance ride because I have a knee that always complains. I hope not.
