I trained for long rides so it's not as simple as over-extending my mileage. However, I have been stopping and starting dozens of times per day, and I think the injury is associated with that, combined with the fact that every time I re-start, I'm needing to get an additional 15 pounds of baggage rolling. Maybe I'm not gearing down enough, and putting undue pressure on the knee I favor from a standstill.
I was fortunate that they have a mobile MRI unit here and it's only at this hospital Monday and Thursday. At least they should be able to tell me what's going on today. Results could take an hour or two. Stay tuned. Oh ya, blog comments are still best. I want to stay off of email entirely until evening.
