So haven't really logged in a little while..
I'd been hoping last year that I could continue my running streak and just run the minimum 3km per day and the knee would sort itself out. Didn't quite happen like that and after Otter trail in October I decided to stop running and try sort it out. Since then I haven't run besides for 6 days over new years period (Big 5 O races), but I've still done a bunch of hiking and a couple weeks of cycling in December (cycle tour from East London to Plett).
The pain has never been really bad and it slowly been improving, but it just hasn't got completely sorted, so it's more about not trying to do more damage/prolonging it than the pain actually stopping me from doing things.
Recently had a change in the diagnosis to more of a patellofemoral (joint) issue than the original tendonitis and hopefully with some decent rehab I'll be back to running again in the next month or two.
So for the moment just trying to do strength, rehab and other stuff that doesn't aggravate the knee too much. Also have another two weeks of lockdown (and unknown after that) to get through, but I'm currently on a massive farm in the midlands with a big dam and more than enough space to do whatever, so that's really not much of a problem.
Will at some stage try update my log for some of the cool things in the last few months (otter trail, 2 weeks hiking in reunion, 2 week cycle tour, big 5 O, a couple witels trips, etc).
