Recovered from knee injury
I liked writing the four words in the heading. My left knee has been bothering me - to the point of making running all but impossible - since April this year. December is almost gone and for the first time in months, I am able to run normally. What a relief! The knee has been getting better slowly over the last few weeks, for no apparent reason. I have been running only in Vibrams for the last 8 weeks or so, and I have been applying Capsaicin (pepper extract) to the knee regularly. Who knows - it might just be a case of the reduced running of the last few months doing the trick. Either way, it really feels good to be out there again! I might even enter a 5K one of these days just to test the waters on the racing front.
