I went to the physio this morning. She used to be up the road but is now miles away. I cycled 20kms again today to get there and back. I am exhausted.
Anyhow, she poked at my knee and pronounced that I had a tear in my meniscus. It used to be called a â€œwear and tearâ€ injury apparently. She didnâ€™t seem too perturbed. She gave me some very mild exercises to do and said that my quads are particularly feeble. Great, thanks. â€œDo I regularly do squats and lunges?â€ I mean, obviously not, we both know this. Do I have leg weights that I can attach to my ankles? Of course I donâ€™t. I will be taping bags of rice to myself as a practical alternative.
She thinks it will be better in 6-8 weeks and I am to go back to her in a fortnight. Dr. Google is much less sanguine but I am ignoring him as much as I can.
She says to keep cycling and walking so thatâ€™s something, I suppose.
