Having developed a sore knee during the final run of week 2 last Thursday, I went to see the Doctor this morning as it has been sore all weekend, with no sign of improvement at all.
She told me that I've most likely got small tears to the muscles and ligaments around my knee, and will be out of action for a couple of weeks or so. Have to keep icing it and take regular doses of ibuprofen and paracetamol. Also been advised to stay clear of knee supports.
A month ago I would never have imagined myself saying this but - I'm gutted that I can't run for a couple of weeks!
Was due to start week 3 yesterday, but no way could I contemplate it. At times I can barely walk, often I can't even sit in a position that doesn't cause pain.
Anybody fancy joining me in glum corner?
