It’s Thursday! I really want to go to group run tonight but my left knee has been acting funky. I haven’t ran since Sunday’s 9 miler.
I took Monday off from running, as usual, and did a Pilates Core video instead.
Tuesday, I hopped on the treadmill before work and it was like I was the Tin Man. My knee would just not cooperate. I was hobbling along….it was not pretty. I slowed my pace hoping that would make it easier. It did not. The only thing that made it easier was when I slowed to a walk. I had started out at a 6.0 and ended up at a 4.0 after only 1/2 a mile. Ugh.
Yesterday, Wednesday, I thought I would give it a rest, that maybe that’s just what my body needed. But I was still tempted to test out the knee…soooo I ran to my mailbox and back. It felt like someone was stabbing my kneecap! What tha crap?!
I am in no way a medical professional able to diagnose myself but that never stops any of us does it? From reading what I have on runnersworld.com I think I have a case of “runner’s knee”…go figure.
Have any of you experienced this before?? What helped and what prevented it? Thanks for the input!
