I've been having very athletic dreams lately. Sunday night I dreamt intensely about baseball. It was interesting because I seemed to be both managing the team and at time playings various positions, so it's like I was dreaming that I was an entire baseball team, although not any team that I could recognize by their faces or uniforms.

And then last night, I dreamt I was swimming in the ocean. I was way out, just barely in sight of the shore, and still swimming farther. I was really struggling against some tough waves, getting pushed down and tossed around, making almost no headway, when my alarm woke me up.

In waking life, I seem to have done something to my right knee, probably when I was bicycling under the influence Thursday night, because I'm getting this annoying pain in it when I begin pedaling from a stopped position. I think I had the same thing a few months ago and it went away in a few days.

I'll add it to the Best of 2009 competition. I just wish it was a little more in focus....

Could it be the weather? I got terrible, stabbing pains in one knee over the weekend, just walking across the living room. IT was so bad I had to sit down and just hang my head for a few minutes. Then it went away. The knee was wonky for a while, and it came back about an hour later, and then it was gone. Back to normal. Weird.

Oh, and that is an impressive pic.

Yeah, it could be. It definitely seems more inclined to bother me in the mornings. Maybe that means I need to stretch before riding.

Stretching is always good. Excercise will help your joints, no matter what.

Sorry, I have to disagree. You should stretch after warming up. Unless you mean stretch as in just move your joints around until you warm up, then sure do that before biking. Actual stretching should be done until you're really warmed up form your activity done gently for a few minutes.
