Still on the IC!

Frustrating as it is, I'm stuck on the IC for a bit longer with a sore knee.

I have tried 2 very short and runs and my knee is still sore afterwards. The issue I have, which is now thought to be Pes Anserine Bursitis, can take quite a while to settle down.

I have not sat on the IC couch though. Been swimming a few times and still finding beautiful places to walk, which I'm loving x

Thinking ahead I will be able to use the programme to help me to get back to it. I will look forward to working hard and join I hope you all with a run! I love reading all your posts - helps me to keep my head in the game. Keep running people!!!

  • Oh blow! That IC can get uncomfortable, but you are doing just fine with your walks and your swimming!

    You will get back into it...I am building back slowly to my last running stop :) I use bits of my lessons learned, from C25K all the time to help me too:)

    You are going to get there soon :)

  • Ah Oldfloss I'm glad that you are getting back to it. I am ok and not feeling too frustrated. I am keeping myself busy and will keep trying a run once a week, just a small one, to see how it's feeling. Being on the IC isn't making me sit still - just not running but managing to keep active! πŸ˜ƒ

  • Frustrating but I can tell from your words that you're committed, so hopefully the combined strength of will and rest will get you back here

  • Yeah I'm determined. It's just one of those things. I will be back when I'm ready! πŸ‘

  • Im just taking my first steps gingerly off the IC after a stint of hip bursitis, so I feel your pain (literally). I was on W7R3 before it struck so I've rewound back to week 4 and am about to do R3 and it's been fine. I've also been giving myself an extra rest day between runs. It sounds like you're doing the right thing, especially with the swimming, so take it easy when you do get back to running and listen to your body.

  • Think it's the only way to get it better although my chiropractor thinks it might actually have displaced a bone but is going to check it out in the week. It is annoyingly painful - I can't really do much on it at all. Swimming doesn't hurt it as much. I have tried 2 week 4 runs and they were ok but it was hurting by the end of the run and it's still hurting today (I ran Thursday) so it's just not worth running on it. I just need to wait it out! Good luck with you runs and I hope it doesn't return! X
