Was doing okay until w4.2. Really enjoying the challenge and feeling so much better when disaster struck. My knee began to hurt and it got worse as I tried the second 5minute run. I just could not do it and had trouble even walking home. Thought giving it a rest it would get better. Applied ice every two hours, elevated leg and tried strapping the knee but despite all this and no running it got worse and worse until I ended up unable to walk and on crutches. The hospital diagnosed knee injury due to running. I can't believe this after just three and a half weeks and they have said 6 weeks 'til it gets better., Guess that's the end for me. And I had spent on a new pair of running shoes.
