But last night, as I was getting up off the couch to go to bed, my right knee made a pop-grind sound that really shouldn't occur. Doing a bit of stretching I found that there's a "nice" ache above the right knee, right at the bottom of the quadriceps (near the Vastus Medialis). It makes itself known on stairs and if I squat down a bit.
Walking in from the bus today, my knee felt pretty good - normal actually. But now as I sit in my office, I can feel it tightening up and getting stiff. There may be a bit of swelling there too now....
Perhaps I'm just getting old. I will be 38 this year, but c'mon - I was just getting up off the damned couch! How sad is that?!? If I was doing intervals or something at least then it would have been justified. But to have this happen just 'cause I wanted to stand up?!? Sheesh!
Hopefully it's nothing. Hopefully things will just "go away" in time for my 90min ride tonight. Hopefully I'm not really getting old (well, old before my time, at least). And hopefully I won't get too embarrassed when my coworkers say "What happened to your leg?"
I better start thinking up a good story.... :D
