0 for me too... and for the rest of the year. I tore my meniscus. I see the surgeon on Friday. On the bright side, the rest of my knee looks (IMO) to be in good shape for a 45 y.o. With over 60,000 miles of running in 30 years.

Aw PC, this is very sad.  Did the tear come on suddenly, or have you suspected something was wrong for a while?  :hug:
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2017-11-13 10:14 AM
Both?  I remember sitting at my desk thinking “my knee hurts.”  And then one day getting out of my car, it REALLY hurt.  But if it doesn’t hurt while running, it’s just one of those aches that will work itself out, right?  It didn’t.  And I can run slowly, but any kind of decent pace and it will let me know later in a bad way.  Biking and stair climbing killed it while doing it.  And yoga is pretty much out – I actually suspect that’s what started it in the first place.  I can’t do child’s pose or a “comfortable seat” or anything that puts my knee in an awkward angle.  And now I can’t do anything that arches my back – because I’m actively trying to improve my Beyoncé butt (sway back).

I started going to a PT hoping that she could figure out what could fix it.  I have so much wrong with me from genetics, too much sitting, and running that it’s tricky for anyone to figure if there’s any one thing more out of whack than usual.  I was impressed she zeroed in right away on all my messed body parts… After various rounds of needling, massage, taping, cupping, and 10 million and one stretches/exercises it never got all the way better… she suggested I get an MRI.  She knew I was resisting because they’re $2500.  Now I wish I had done it sooner because not only do I get a new deductible Jan. 1, but I’m going to Mexico Dec 27th! :cry:   We’ve already got horseback riding and zip lining booked.

Funny/not funny… I have floored yet another PT office with the immobility of my ankles.  It’s always fun to see their eyes bug out when I attempt to squat, or even touch my knee to the wall.  They’re like “I have 80 year old patients that are better than you.”  Uh.. yep.  I know!  And one memorable interaction with the trainer guy… He had me doing the calf raise machine – no real weight, but hoping gravity could help…

Me: <finished raising up and just sitting on/in the machine>
Trainer: OK.  Now just push your heels toward the floor.
Me: I am?!
Trainer: No.  I mean push them to the floor like this.  <demonstrates>
Me:  That’s what I’m trying to do.  This is as far as they go.
Trainer: :wtf: What does it feel like?  Does it hurt?  Where do you feel a stretch?
Me:  I feel nothing.  Nothing feels tight.  They just don’t move.  It’s like if I told you to bend your elbow backward, it wouldn’t hurt.  You just couldn’t do it.  That’s how this feels.
Trainer:  But my elbow isn’t supposed to move backwards.  Your ankle/calf should move like that.
Me:  <Shrugs> :laugh::cry::laugh::cry:

See above. Only one novel/day :wink:
Parent - - By Xtreme Taper Date 2017-11-13 9:01 AM
Oh, crap. I've been through it now a few times. First time I recovered from the procedure pretty quickly. I am probably not the best one to ask for advice as I tend to jump back into my routine too quickly. But you are healthy and in good shape so you will be way ahead of most others in the recovery department if a procedure is done.
Parent - - By PoopedColt Date 2017-11-13 10:16 AM
Thanks! I’m not in a big hurry to get back. It’s more of the administrative mess, cost, and timing that frustrates the h*ll out of me. And also am anticipating all of the “I told you running would ruin your knees” comments.
Parent - - By Xtreme Taper Date 2017-11-13 3:28 PM
Is the surgeon recommending surgery? If so, if you can get it done soon maybe you can take of the deductible mess before year end. I had my left knee scoped in May 2011... 5 weeks later I was in Costa Rica and was pretty much back to normal, at least for non-running activities, like rafting, zip-lining, hiking, and even some slow short running. Of course you never know how you will recover. The whole $ makes it a mess as you mention. Oh, yes and the comments.
Parent - By PoopedColt Date 2017-11-13 4:31 PM
Not yet. I haven’t seen him. But from reading the report and speaking with the PT, I’m guessing it will.  I hope so, because she’s almost as frustrated with it as I am.

That is definitely encouraging about your recovery! It’s sad that I’m not as anxious about having something done as I am about the whole process to get to the point to having it done. 

Thanks!

BTDT you will bounce right back!
Parent - By Mickeyd Date 2017-11-14 7:59 AM
Oh no!  I hope you are able to get back quickly and the repair has you good for another 60,000 miles.  :hug:

Not quite yet. But they are looking good.
Parent - By The Beard (is wearing Arm Panties) [us] Date 2017-11-13 12:41 PM
Michigan will be a test (though I said the same about Iowa).

The weak link, as always, is the quarterback. Hornibrook has a weak arm, isn't mobile and has very little awareness of what's going on around him.  He single handedly kept Iowa in the game (at least in the first half) on Saturday. All of their points were from pick sixes.:meh:
