So what do you want first? What's your preference? Hmmm, I could use a poll here. ;)
Perhaps I'll do it in order of importance.
The Good News:
The knee is GOOD TO GO! I saw the doctor today, and what I have is some bursitis. It's also known as - get this - "cleaner's knee" and "housekeeper's knee." Sweet. I can see that generating some smart-ass comments. I guess I was kneeling too much, or got it just right and >pow< that was it. In any case, my doctor said that this results from stress on the front of the knee, while the swim-bike-run stuff puts stress on the joint itself. So, it's ice and NSAIDs for the bursitis, and a pile of training for the knee joint! :D Great news with just 7 weeks left to my first Ironman race.
The Bad News:
Ok, there isn't really any bad news. But it added to the moment. ;)
