bad news: My magic pill = new shoes did not prevent my knee from hurting on today’s short run ?

My knee has still been hurting me on every run, so I’m going to play the half marathon this weekend by “knee” – instead of by “ear”. I don’t want to make it worse, so I want to see how it feels on Friday before I decide whether I’m running or not.

My lovely partner in the Pysch Ward: A Memoir – book Review


The pain has not gotten any less over the last week. Today I did some research and suspect it is ITB Syndrome.

From the time to Run website:

Symptoms: Initially, a dull ache 1-2 kilometers into a run, with pain  remaining for the duration of the run. The pain disappears soon after stopping running, later, severe sharp pain which prevents running pain is worse on running downhills, or on cambered surfaces pain may be present when walking up or downstairs.

Treatment: stop running, especially in the case of severe pain if pain is mild, then reduce training load and intensity,  and avoid downhill running and running on cambered surfaces.
Take a course (5 – 7 days) of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs  (ibuprofen/voltaren/cataflam/mobic) available from your general practitioner or pharmacist.
Apply ice to the knee (for 10minutes every 2 hours) in order to reduce the inflammation

Those are pretty much my symptoms and I think the cause is basically overuse from marathon training. since the pain is not too bad right now, but I don’t want it to get worse I am considering laying off running before rather than after the half marathon. I didn’t really train for this race, but just signed up because I was in good enough shape to finish it and it’s the scene of my first marathon from last year ?

I will be very bummed if I have to bow out, but more bummed if I have to take six weeks off running or something like that!

Before my attempted run this morning I had a small bowl of cereal. Then, I did 3 miles on the treadmill. The plan was to do 4 miles, but my knee started hurting around 1.5 miles and kept hurting all the way through. I didn’t’ stop right away because I wanted to get a good sense of where the pain is and how to describe it so I could diagnose it.

I iced it while making breakfast…see the goosebumps?

and ate a banana with almond butter too.

Breakfast was soyrizo with a wrap used as a tortilla ?

No fork needed – just tear,  grab and eat!

Now I’m enjoying some cherries whilst blogging. I may or may not have eaten 2 pounds of cherries in 2 days.

And to Emily – yes, I buy a big bag of brussels from Costco. I’ve seen them at the farmer’s market in CA when they’re in season too. I tried to freeze them myself one time (pre-cooking) and they smelled so gross, I don’t know if that works.

I  just took one ibuprofen and am hoping that will help with inflammation.

I don’t want to get all chicken little on you, but if I can’t run I do feel like “The sky is falling!!!”
