Injury update

24hrs after last night's run with the Plums, my knee feels absolutely fine.  Not even the remotest little twinge having now been on the Ibuprofen for 48 hours as instructed.

However, really unlike me, I've spent most of this evening asleep.  Hopefully, its just down to the heat.  One of my wisdom teeth is sore too as its cutting through the Gum as well so may be related.  Spent nearly 90 minutes asleep in the bath and then fell asleep again on the sofa for nearly 45 mins during the second half of the England Ladies v France Ladies match on BBC3.  I cant remember the last time I fell asleep indoors before bedtime.

Anyhow, the knee feels good enough to cycle on now for the first time in over three weeks.  So thats the plan for tomorrow night.  Nothing too far or over the top, just a nice ride at half decent pace out into the lanes to ensure I've got the cleat positions correct and am going to adjust my saddle height too, raising it a fraction to take some more pressure off the knees and hopefully give me a little more power.

Roll on tomorrow evening!
