After my Birthday parkrun I felt on top of the world. I had run further than ever before and was so pleased. Then on Sunday I went to volunteer at Stokes Bay junior parkrun. Everything felt fine.
Then we went to spectate at Stubbington 10K. We cycled down there as we thought the roads surrounding it would be shut. Every time I pushed down on the pedal with my right leg, I got a pain in my knee. I didn’t really think too much of it as I’ve always suffered with my knees right from being a child. I get the odd twinge but it never turns out to be anything major.
We spectated and rode back, again a bit of pain in my knee but nothing too bad. I decided to cancel my spin class as I’d spent over 30 minutes cycling anyway. That night the pain in my knee got worse. I took some Ibuprofen, just to be safe and went to bed.
I woke up numerous times in the night as I bent my leg I got a hot pain in my knee. When I woke up there was a definite pain in my knee whenever I bent it. Being at work all week definitely aggravated it. Getting up from the floor to standing was agony and going to sit on chairs, then getting back up really hurt it.
The pain finally started to get a little better on Thursday, by Friday it had mostly eased. Now (Sunday) it has pretty much gone, although when I ran upstairs earlier because I forgot about it I did get a twinge. Nothing too bad though. Fingers crossed it’s on the mend now but it means I haven’t run for a whole week and now I’m scared I’ll be right back to square one.
Why is there always something with me?!
