Sometimes you want to give it up.

I’ve had chronic knee pain for as long as I have been riding bikes. Not a lot to say about it, I hurt after a couple hours on the bike. Big gears, small gears, road, mountain, cross. Whatever. The knees ache and eventually I cannot pedal without feeling like I am screwing them up.

Enough about that.

I’ve scheduled an appointment with an Orthopedist. And I’m going to dial in my fit.

I started writing this post weeks ago, I was trying to put in bigger blocks of riding. 20+ hours a week. And the knees were not co-operating. It was kinda depressing, I was shifting my life around to make more time to train but my body was not having any of it. Makes it feel futile. The training and energy put in to cycling.

“How can I progress if I cannot push my body any further?” I ask myself.

  2. Great….

    So you’ve already been kicking our ass on sore knees. Talk about feeling futile.

    Hey I was in Philly last week, and wondered “How the heck did Molly eat back here?”

  3. Vegan philly cheesesteak on South Street.

    Ask any bike messenger you run into about it.
