I've just had my knee emptied.

I finally went to the doc this morning after my knee had siezed and swollen up for the second time this year after running. He stuck a needle in the side of it and and took out 60 ml or cl (can't remember which but it was some sort of Euro bollocks unit of volume which, by the look of it, added up to a decent wine glass full) and it was like a minor miracle: I could suddenly bend my leg again without loads of pain.

The good news is that I'm more or less banned from running and have to do more cycling and maybe even swimming so now I will have a clear conscience about buying a posh Tacx trainer for winter.;) The moral of the story might just be that if you fancy a nice bit of new cycling kit, do something damaging to your body.
