So I mentioned last week that after my run at the gym on Tuesday, I had some knee pain. Ever since I started following the C25K I have had some form of knee pain, but normally it only acted up when I ran, or right after, and would go away with some icy hot.
But last Tuesday the treadmill stopped working mid run, causing me to land strange, and giving me knee pain and shin pain. The shin pain went away after a day, but working on Wednesday caused the knee pain to get even worse. I took Thursday Friday and Saturday off, rested, and iced it. It seemed to help, because on Sunday I did the eliptical and some Ab work, and felt no discomfort, and only a little uncomfortable afterwards, which isn't rare for me (I owe a lot of it to the fact that I still have about 50 pounds to lose)
So I went to the gym yesterday with no knee pain, and figured why not give it a go. I lasted about 15 minutes running, and then felt the pain again, so I stopped at around 1.5 miles, and walked on an incline for the rest of my workout. I got home, put an ice pack on and rested it for the night. My knee is still a little sore today, and I honestly don't know what is wrong.
Hopefully by that point the pain will have subsided.
I'm also going to look up some knee strengthening exercises, I hope that will help too. I can't help but be slightly nervous, but hopefully it's all for nothing and I'll be fine next week :-)
Any tips on how you deal with knee pain?
