I have been suffering from knee pain for the last week. Probably should have passed on last Saturdays long run after all the miles earlier that week. I also ran a lot of hills. Yesterday, I attempted my 10 mile long run – during marathon training the 10 miles wasn’t a big deal. Yesterday, it was hard to run. I did the 10 miles but was forced to walk about half because of such. I have about 300 miles on my tennis shoes so will be getting new ones this week. This morning before taking the Motrin, it was hard putting a lot of weight on my left leg/knee. After Motrin, much better. I am hoping and praying I haven’t injured my knee(s). When it was both of them I didn’t think injury. Now, I’m not so sure.
I have a half marathon in 3 weeks. Didn’t think this was a big deal till now.
Has anyone else experienced this? If so, what was the outcome? Hoping nothing major is going on…
- Roller for IT Band 3x a day
- Getting new shoes
- Stretching after runs
