Sore knee? Do legs

sore-knee[1]My twice operated on right knee has felt sore and mildly swollen more often than not the last 30 days, surely a result of the overload of home labor projects.  Today it was sore again, sore enough that I walked into the office with a noticeable limp.  Of course my knee didn’t realize it was Tuesday, meaning I needed to do legs at the gym.  I steered clear of the deep smith machine squats that pulverize my lower body, swapping it out for the leg press sled.  I also had no quad extensions this week since both of the gyms Cybex leg extension machines were OOO at the same time, an odd occurrence.
