Sharp turn + heavy bag = Physics Fail

Sharp turn + heavy bag = Physics Fail

Should have known all those lessons in circular motion and force would
be somewhat useful someday.

I had adjusted my seat to be higher than what I'm comfortable with
yesterday so I can get faster on my 29". I ride with 100mm cranks. While
carrying a bulky bag today I leaned in and out too fast on a sharp Z
turn and felt a pull on the back of a knee - the same leg I'd dismount
with.

Next thing I know, I can't stretch out my leg without feeling a strain
at the back.

Crap.

coulda pulled a tendon or something. Dont extend it
just try and keep it imobilized as much as possible, and see a doctor
as soon as possible. Whats the pain feel like when you attempt to extend
it? also, can you move your toes fine?

Yeah, he probably pulled a tendon.

When you bend backwards and stick your tongue out to the left, can you
move your pinkie toe in a figure eight? If not, what does it feel like?
If you can't, then you probably sprained your lateral condyle.

Just kidding.

*panicks* I CAN"T MOVE MY PINKIE TOE IN A FIGURE EIGHT!

I don't think it's that serious though - it's probably a strain that'd
go away in a day or two. It's really annoying though that I feel the
pain when walking.
