The last thing a runner (or any athlete) wants is an injury. I'm very confident I have a knee injury (possibly from that marathon I ran) but I'm unsure how severe it may be. I suppose the good thing is that I only get it with running...typically around 3 miles. I don't even get it during 2 hour Hip Hop sessions. It feels like this semi-intense pressure in my knee that, if it popped, would make me feel better. That's the only way I can think to describe it.
Today, it presented slightly different. I've been running on the treadmill because I hate running in the cold. I had to do 5 miles...around mile 3, I began feeling the pressure. About a half mile later, this shooting pain began...it happened maybe 5 or so times before my run ended. Each time it happened, I felt like I had to grab the bar on the treadmill or I would fall (which would have been awesome). I might just have to keep my mileage down until it heals...I just hope it's nothing serious.
If any of you have experienced something similar, please let me know your story!
