Reservations for the Pain Cave
Who knew? All the time in the saddle, redlining the max heart rate, all in an effort to get a few moments of clarity in the pain cave. All you need to do is ignore a minor injury until it becomes a backstage pass to the Pain Cave live in concert.
I've never been one to have any of these chronic knee/joint-related injuries so this is pretty new territory for me. I do know that staggering around straight-legged like Frankenstein's monster does nothing to improve an injury.
Today I am scheduled for total cessation of activity, constant ice, and major rest. Sometimes you just have to give in and roll with it.
It's a big, boring, disappointing bummer for my first week home in a long time- not that I'm playing for sympathy or anything.
