Oh the pain!

OK, not much update this week as I'm been off the bike since the race on Sunday. I definitely felt like I was making progress on the injury during the week - to the extent I headed out on the mountain bike last night for a test. I was careful not to go too fast, or fully extend my knee. But after less than an hour it was getting quite painful. So I called it a night and got ice on the back of the knee when I got home.

It was sore again this morning. And the physio was not too optimistic about full recovery - 3 to 4 weeks. He gave the hamstrings a good massage, did the ultrasound and laser treatment on it also. I'm going back on Tuesday to see what progress has been made, but absolutely no biking for me until next weekend, and I'll be taking that at an easy pace.

So it looks like NPS round 2 might be doable, but could be my first spin in anger in over 3 weeks. Ah well, these things happen.
