knees

Lately my knee has been troubling me, almost as much as when I was not swimming. I exacerbated the problem last Saturday, when I worked on my yard. I didn't spend all that much time there, just weed-whacked, raked, cut some branches, probably no more than 20 minutes altogether. But it was enough to make my knee go into limp mode again, and that continued all day and into the night and again Sunday morning. I thought of not going swimming yesterday morning but went anyway, and I felt that knee pain the whole time. Interestingly, I welcomed the pain, because I suspected that it was related to future improvement.

This morning, at work, I was getting up and having to overcome the limp when I walked anywhere. Again, a sense of going backwards. I went swimming again after work, though, and this time it made the right kind of difference. I didn't feel real pain at all while swimming and it feels quite a bit better now. I keep trying to figure out the clues from all these things but I haven't yet worked it out.
