I got on the bike today, since I didn’t want to push my luck after yesterday's successful run. My back was taped, but not my leg. To my surprise, I found I was pedaling in a different way than usual. My right knee didn’t drift inward, and my left leg was doing more work. I hadn’t noticed in the past that my right leg usually pushed more than my left, but now it was very obvious.

Have I been doing this on the run—pushing harder with my right side than my left? It would explain a lot about the recurring tendonitis in my right hip, wouldn’t it?

Biomechanics are a funny thing.

Not a surprise since a person has a tendency to favor one side over the other. I find that I use my left more than my right many a time.

I notice i pedal more with my right than my left. I try to make a conscious effort ot balance the load out.

I hop on all fours. Pretty much all the time. Yep, that's about it.
