However, I did complete this Virtual 5K...
... in honor of Nancy. .... Very slow...
I would have ran it yesterday, but I was struggling with flu like symptoms (just the aches and fever) Friday and into Saturday morning that left me in bed for about 19 hours. I was a little too weak to attempt it yesterday.
The Results: The first two miles were good and pain free. And then, it went all down hill from there. The knee just didn't feel right, it started to feel tight. I can't really say it hurt, because it really didn't. It was just very uncomfortable. And I was wearing the knee band as well.
I walked most of the last half mile. It was extremely frustrating.
The knee really only bothers me when I am running. And when I finish and stretch for a bit, the pain/tightness is gone. I doesn't seem to be swelling at all, however I still ice it and take ibuprofen after each run.
The knee has been bothering me for only about a week and a half, but it feels like an eternity.
This is killing me.
I think it's time to face the music and see a specialist.
