Yesterday started beautifully. A leisurely 1 mile run with my daughter's during half-term week. As I was off this week, and as we weren't going to be away, I decided to finally get round to visiting my doctor about my knee pains.
I have been suffering with my knee for months. Early on in my running, W8 of C25k to be exact, it had got so bad that I took a fortnight out before attempting to run W9.
Since then it has been manageable, and has even felt better since I have reduced my running to once a week. However, manageable Isn't really good enough is it? So, fortified with the hope of a nice referral to a physio I booked my appointment.
Unfortunately, doctors have a tendency to tell you what you need - rather than what you want - to hear.
So, possibly cartilage damage - but, definitely 1 month consignment to to IC. No running, no cycling and a few knee exercises - only then will we see whether further treatment is required.
