You never put so much thought into every waking minute into one thing unless you’re injured.
Every minute is consumed by my knee. Since having those mega pains on Thursday I’ve rested and felt my muscles slowly contract into heavy tough lumps of flesh. I feel the knee every so often, move it up and down while I lounge on the couch. When I get up and walk about I’m super sensitive to the niggles, if any, or the creaks or the way my knee feels.
Is this conducive to a healthy recovery? Should there be small runs? How small is small? Is active recovery best in this situation. I mean it’s not falling off but then I’ve not had that strong pain since Thursday. Am I just being hyper-sensitive? Hyper aware of the knee so much so I’m preventing my recovery?
Ah – life on the injury bench ain’t easy!
