today was the day i decided to brave the court since my knee surgery back in june. actually, i had stopped playing over a month before the surgery.
i have been riding my recumbent bike since the beginning of august, and it had done a good job of getting me back into some shape. i say “some shape” because nothing gets you into shape like playing basketball, especially with some of the guys on my court.
i wanted to take it easy since it was the first time back. i believe that i did. my knee did feel a bit more sore than usual about an hour after i got to work. climbing stairs reveals that ache a little more than normal. considering that we played 4-on-4, it’s doing rather well.
i will decide on monday or if i should wait again till wednesday for further punishment. until then, ibuprofen and ice.
