Knee update

Its now almost 6 days since I injured my knee and I have to say its is still nowhere near 100%.

I thought I was clever giving it a test on Thursday in the Gym but I'm not sure now whether it was the best thing to do. Once I changed my cleats over on Thursday evening, I was in so much discomfort on the bike in only 1.5 miles, it was clear it was no where near right and it still seems to be the case.

As it stands, depending on what way I hold the leg, I can feel it. Its not a pain, its a discomfort. Its difficult to describe but its certainly nagging away at me. For me to have 5 days off training out of a possible 6, you know it is significant. I'm going to take it easy today and give it one more day and see how I feel tomorrow. 

I have to say, I'm concerned. I've got less than a month until the RideLondon race and I really would like to be able to ride 2 or 3 decent length rides before I tackle it but time is beginning to run out.
