Two weeks ago I took a hard left turn without slowing down and my left knee didn’t feel right. I almost completely forgot about it until I went for a run two days later and I didn’t need to run more than 10k to come home limping.
I took 2 full weeks off from running and this Saturday I went to run again with the club. I was alright for the first 3-4k, then the pain started kicking in and I was all a mess after 6-7k. I still managed to get back to the starting point, running 13k but I was in a pretty bad shape at the end.
The pain is at the exterior of my left knee. I read on the internet and it seemed to be the IT Band which was actually confirmed today by the sports doctor. Next, physio and chiropractor for a couple of weeks and no running at all. I will also walk to work weather permits. Hopefully I will be back on my feet soon and do some good running afterwards.
Since I now have at hand 5-6 extra hours per week, because I’m not running, I’m looking into finding some great running shoes and I will be doing some online search and research which I will share with you soon. So, keep this web browser tab open.
Till then, lace up and run! Cheers, Vic
