Then last week's biff on the same leg, same exact spot, while riding my Snow Dog for Global Fat Bike Day, reignited the swelling, and I then just decided to take it easy. The week was filled with commuting by bicycle, but for a ride off road Wednesday. Things have been okay, but the knee isn't right. I am still suffering from inflammation and the knee is weaker than the right side.
Saturday's ride consisted of a good lap around the Camp's trails. I rode a bike with a 1 X 10 drive train, not unlike By-Tor before I made that rig into a single speed. The trails were tacky to almost muddy, but way better than last weekend's and last Wednesday's sloppy conditions which were treacherous. One lap, and one lap only, just to see how the knee was going to react.
Well, it was showing effects of the injury in weakness, but it never hurt, and afterward it didn't really swell up and get uncomfortable, like it had before after riding. So- Progress. Slow but steady progress back to getting the leg strong and ready for the steeps of Triple D.
