Errrr… I had to stop today’s Max Interval Circuit at 20 minutes in due to the sudden onset of a stabbing pain behind my left kneecap. It only hurts when I bend it. Further exercise became immediately impossible.
What’s the deal? Age? Injury? Overuse? All of the above? I am very annoyed.
Yesterday, I reached day 60–two-thirds of the way through this round–as I was getting back into a regular schedule again after a couple of weeks of being sick. I did Shoulders and Arms and Ab Ripper X. And while I still was feeling sluggish, I felt I was moving those weights with good strength. And now this today.
The only thing I can think of is that on Sunday I played a singles tennis match on clay. I must have tweaked the knee at some point and it only became apparent today when I expected it to be of use to me again in the Insanity session. I don’t know. It’s just weird how the pain suddenly came on. What makes this even more annoying is that this is my good knee, never an issue, my whole life. I need to go check on the warranty.
Hopefully this is just some minor thing that rest (the last thing I want to be doing AGAIN) and Advil will cure. For you younger readers out there, let this be a lesson about the downside of getting older. Something to avoid, if possible.
