So I've been having my problems with my left knee lately. I've been riding my scooter around campus more and more for the past couple weeks, and the constant bending and lifting of my left knee when I go to push off with my right one and power myself is really starting to strain it. I've taken to wearing a cloth knee brace under my jeans, but it's still persistently sore.
Since Wednesdays are my extremely busy days (4 hour-long classes in a row, an hour break for lunch, then two more hour-long classes in a row), I decided yesterday not to bring my scooter. It's just too much of a hassle to carry around, especially since the buildings for my classes are right next to each other, and I also need to find a place to put it during classes, and it makes eating lunch (or to be more precise, carrying my lunch to the table) a precarious act. Since I wasn't riding my scooter, I decided not to wear my knee brace. My knee felt fine the entire day, even though I was walking everywhere.
I just find that strange. You would think that walking would put more strain on my knee than riding. I suppose it's partly because I have a bad tendency to lock my leg when I ride, but heck, I was doing that all the time back in my high school marching band days, and I only had knee problems when I was first starting out and not used to it. At any rate, I'll probably continue to ride my scooter everywhere. I'm a lazy bum that way
