Australian Alps early next week (photo taken

|Some more of my planned running scenery for next week|
I wasn't conscious of any particular problems during the run, though my chronic right knee and Achilles injuries were about as worrisome as usual. The new problem became evident after the run, when a dull pain emerged behind my right knee and proceeded to get worse and worse during the day. If I sit down for any length of time, the pain is significant as soon as I try straighten the knee and begin walking again. I have a feeling that it is related to the Baker's Cyst, a fluid sac behind the knee, that can become swollen if the knee is unstable. It's an injury I have had in the past and the swelling can take a long time to subside (friends have had the fluid in the sac removed via a syringe, but often the problem quickly recurs if the knee is still unstable).
