My knee is iffy. Icing helps a lot. If I go more than a couple hours, I can feel that it needs icing again.
Tomorrow is my running day. I probably shouldn't run, but
1. I like running
2. I need the endorphins -- If I don't get my aerobic exercise, I feel like I can't breathe.
3. No run, no food.
I used the Nordic Trak today. The knee is no worse, but it's also no better. If I Ice, run, then ice, I can probably make the pain go away, but I might be just covering it up.
Argh. Do I rest for a few days in order to heal? Or do I do what it takes to minimize the pain and keep going with my normal routine?
p.s. please don't anyone suggest swimming. I hate swimming, and the likelihood of me hyperextending my knee while swimming is very high. Plus I'd need to find a pool, etc, etc. And did I mention I hate swimming?
