So last year was my first go at trainerroad. Loved it, but got sidelined by medial pain in my right knee… did 3 or 4 months of PT and got back to riding last fall. Got all of my bikes fit as well, and did all of that fun stuff. Started trainerroad again this year to get my power back, and it was going great!.. until the same pain in the same knee reared it’s ugly head. It’s tough when your mind is in the right place to work, but your body won’t let you stay in the hurt locker!
Long story short I just got diagnosed with plica syndrome, and am having my plica removed on 6/10. I’m excited to have a path forward, but also just bummed that the same issue is impacting another year of riding.
I was given an expected recovery of 2-6 weeks for normal activity… and 4 months for cycling?! Does that sound right do y’all?
My “Surgery Recovery Goals”
-Do all of the PT work prescribed
-Build core and upper body strength with my gymnastics rings and other at home workouts.
-lose this injury/covid weight (not gonna lie, been having a few too many brewskis since my knee acted up again. lol)
Anyhow a lot of this is just rambling, but i’m looking for a light at the end of the tunnel! Any feedback would be appreciated.
