I spent much of last night tossing and turning due to an achy knee. By this morning I was almost convinced that I should back out of a fall training program. Some stretching and foam rolling has at least delayed any hasty decisions on that front.
Then at Starbucks I saw the Wall Street Journal piece on how science is supporting the old wives' tale that achy joints can predict coming weather. Rheumatoid arthritis does flare up when rain is on the way. And, indeed, after beautiful weather yesterday, rain is predicted for today in Indianapolis.
Two ways to see this:
(1) Great news. I didn't exacerbate an injury over the last week of running. Or,
(2) OMG. I have rheumatoid arthritis.
