I went for a run on Saturday, my first since my runner’s knee came back half a year ago. My legs were out of shape, and I had to stop a couple times, but my knee lasted the whole way. It felt good to be back in the saddle.
I suspect it flared up again because I switched to a standing desk a while back. I started feeling it on runs soon after the switch, but it wasn’t until walking started triggering it too, and then even just standing, that I connected the dots. I switched back to sitting on a ball, and a month later I was running again.
I am a bit disappointed. I really enjoyed the standing desk, and I appreciated that I wasn’t sitting all day. I might be able to compromise and stand some of the time, but my desk at work isn’t easily adjustable, so I’ll have to put that on hold for now. I’m glad I tried the standing desk, but I’m even more glad I can run again. See you on the road!
