Oh no!

Oh no! My knee!

After yesterday's long run - which felt fine and left me tired and a bit muscle sore, but nothing I didn't expect - I woke up this morning to sharp pain in my kneecap. I walked around in the morning hoping that warming it up might help - nope. It hurts to bend my leg when I walk, it hurts to go up and down stairs. Of course - being a mad runner in marathon training - I decide that maybe a run will make it better. And amazingly, for a little while, it seems to. I think I'd been unconsciously keeping it tight, so warming up loosened it. But the pain remained. And after 4.5 miles of the 7 miler I intended, I had to stop. And so I stopped. I iced it and am ibuprofening it. Tomorrow morning I am ringing my osteopath - he's a sub 3hr marathoner and very unlikely to tell me to stop running. Moreover, although it feels different, I have had patellar tendonitis in the past and he helped, quickly.

So what it is, I don't know. I hope I can see the guy tomorrow and at least find out what's wrong and what to do. How it happened, I don't know either - I didn't feel anything yesterday or on any other running days. It's really sudden. Here I've been so smugly telling everyone who asked (because they always ask don't they "won't your knees go sometime?") that since my ChiRunning course I've not suffered an injury.. Oh well. Pride before fall and all that.

Will keep you all posted..

I think this is a natural pain, Petra. Try not to jump ahead and worry yourself. All this does is gives you a story to tell about your marathon training when you hit the finish line.

You're going to be fine.

I hope the osteopath will give you some positive news. I will hope it's not a big deal (although it's hurting right now.)

Do let us know what you find out.

GOOD LUCK my friend!!! You are lucky to have a runner for an osteopath!

Since it came on very suddenly without warning, I hope it's nothing serious. Sometimes I've just tweaked mine while doing nothing memorable and had to take a day or so off until the inflammation went down. Good luck!!

Fingers crossed that it was just a funny twist and not a real problem! I want you to run the FLM strong!

Here's to a quick recovery of whatever is ailing you. I hope that it's not debilitating, but that it's just the body adjusting... Stay strong

Stay positive. Best wishes my friend.

Good luck at the doctor, I'm sure it is something minor. You will get through it! :)
