Intense knee pain on day due to run! Should I try tomorrow?


I had my best ever run on wednesday (week 5 run 2) and was excited, if a little nervous, to do the big 2-0 today.

My rest day was fine yesterday, but today I dunno if I'm coming down with something...started the day feeling really sick, then had pain in my arm that I bruised at the weekend, and then from around 2pm some knee pain, and it's just been getting worse and worse. Now it hurts so badly I cant think straight! I dunno where it's come from or what to do! I was so proud of Wednesday's you think I should try tomorrow? Maybe I just didn't sleep well? Or something?!

Thanks :)

  • If it hurts i wouldn't got out...i'd take another rest day and see how it is.

  • Definitely rest it, give yourself some time, you could make it much worse. Your body will let you know when its time to run again.

  • I ran on a sore knee & had to take a month out. please dont run until it doesnt hurt any more.

    enjoy the rest! :)

  • I would give it a rest if it hurts.In a couple of months a week out now will be all but forgotten but as Shelley says if you crack on and end up having to have a bigger gap you won't thank yourself.

    These things sometimes go as quick as they come. Take care.
