Sore Knee

I went for a jog/walk this afternoon and I now have a dull pain in the middle of my right knee. I guess, I should avoid any kind of running for a while and just stick to walking. I guess that is what I get for trying to increase my activity level. The last thing I need is some sort of knee injury. No significant activity over the weekend except for a diabetes conference on Saturday and a wedding on Sunday. Kind of made it difficult to get in any sort of exercise (that's my excuse and I'm sticking with it) except for walking to church. I was originally trying to jog/run since I can cover the same distance in less time. From everything I've read, your Calorie consumption per mile was pretty much the same whether you are running or running. For some reason, I have a hard time believing that since it is so much more difficult to run.

Since it will be warming up this week, I plan on finally getting some work done on my motorcycle. When it is below zero outside, the garage is just too cold to work on things. Just some routine maintenance that, for me, only needs to be done annually. I still need to address the difficult starting and rough running in rainy weather last summer. From reading Charlie6's July 2008 post, the problem may be very small hairline cracks in one or both of the coils. There are a bunch of other things as it is an old BMW airhead. I think they are known for needing a lot of routine maintenance. But, at least the average person can actually do the work. No need to take it in to the shop for most things.

Sorry about the knee. Warm weather can't get here soon enough. The sun fixes everything. Motivation to repair bikes and sore knees!
