Track and share your training!

Dailymile makes it easy to keep track of your workouts. Map your routes and share with a community of active people.

Everytime I bend my knee there I'd a pop and a grind. Which I'm going to say is not good. Every step hurts pretty bad or is at least not as enjoyable as a hug. It's 150$ an xray that my insurance does not cover. For the time being (until I can get enough money for a couple xrays, I get payed soon so it should be more than a week) I will not be with you lovely people logging the mileage. :(
Hope everyone's training is going well. I will be creeping from afar so I will not be leaving you completely <3

    That really blows, Harris. I'm sorry. Keep RICEing on your own time and it may heal before you have to resort to the x-rays. But really give it some love! I hope it gets better soon!

    Harris, if you had no trauma it's probably just an overuse issue. If no past injury, an xray will probably be normal - even if it isn't, are you going to stop running? (I wouldn't) Just listen to your knee and cross train until it feels better.

    Sounds like runners knee like Gil R. said. RICE and three days of scheduled high dose ibuprofen is what I have done in the past. Hopefully in two weeks you be good as new!

    Take care, man. I have no idea what it is or what to do about it. But sounds like you're getting some solid advice.

    Hey bro, really sorry about all of this. I had a severe case of runner's knee last year. The way I cured it was 4 weeks of intensive rehab (leg lifts, IT band recovery etc.) and lots and lots of icing. I still ran here and there but it took a solid month to recover. I still ran a marathon 7 weeks later though, so you'll pull through. The key for the next time is to do as much strengthening work as you're doing running.
