The advantage of keeping a blog is that it reminds you that a year ago you were quite as crippled in the knees as you are now. I had vague recollections of last winter making stair-climbing stiff, but not that my knees were spasming useless for a week.

Then again, they've been spasming this year far longer than last: four weeks and counting. On the other hand, stretching does seem to help, since there are days I'm pretty much fine as long as I don't walk, bicycle, or stand about too much. (So does attention to posture: standing up straight relieves a lot of the pain.) On the third paw, I still don't have a solution for the boots problem (bref: my legs hate them) and it isn't even deadly 'inching my way over ice' weather yet.

Ah well. Have Aging Backwards in the mail, which may get me some good IT band exercises eventually. Also boots and cold-wet have a time-limit to them, and one must simply wait it out.

Meanwhile the moon is exactly the one seen in my icon.

S swears by yoga, says he would be unable to stand up without it. Might be worth a try

My hesitation re: yoga is that I'm starting from damaged rather than functional, and I don't know whether the books or the practitioners are able to deal with that. I still do a couple of yoga stretches that seem to help.

A good yoga teacher can start from damaged, but good form is critical. Yoga stretching healed my tendonitis 20 years ago.
