As some of you may already be aware, the last couple of weeks I have been having a little knee trouble. I think it started after my last hill training run. I felt pain in both knees but the right knee settled down. However, my left knee is still giving me problems.
I spent last week resting my knee and didn't run at all. I was placing an ice pack on my knee two to three times a day and taking ibuprofen twice a day.
Yesterday I tried a gentle run on my treadmill (hoping it would be less of an impact on my knee than running outside). I managed a 30 minute run but only covering 3k and my knee started playing up after about 2k.
As some of you may also know, I've signed up to run in the Middlesbrough Tees Pride 10k race this Sunday (10th Anniversary of the race) but it may be that I have to pull out which will be a massive blow to me. I was so looking forward to my first 'official' race. All the information and kilometre marker signs have now been erected along the route which is making me even more frustrated!
I'm going to have another little run on Thursday and see how I feel before making a decision. Damn you injury couch!
