No Run Knee

Last Thursday, I woke up to a very swollen knee. It was painful and I had very limited range of motion. I couldn't figure out what I had done (race Sunday, baseball Monday, easy run Tuesday, rest Wednesday), but clearly, I had done something.

I iced and elevated the knee throughout the day and saw real progress. Nevertheless, I headed to my family doctor on Friday and secured a referral to physio.

Yesterday (Monday), my knee felt fine, but I headed to physio anyway.

After a few pokes and bends and measurements the therapist determined that I had some cartilage damage but not a full on Meniscus tear (thank goodness!).


I can't run for two weeks and I'll be hitting physio two times a week for the next three for laser, ice and some other kind of therapy (I can't remember).

I hope the weeks pass quickly.

Of course, we've had the perfect running weather the past few days.


  1. Sorry about the knee, but good idea to take care of it. Hope it heals up quickly.

  2. Crap! Sorry to hear that. Hopefully they are able to get you all fixed up and back on the road quickly.

  3. Weird how it came out of nowhere but glad it's nothing serious!

  4. Sorry to hear that but glad it isn't worse. Hope you heal quickly :)


Thanks for joining in the conversation!
