...the number of steps on my fitbit after I finished my run/walk today, and that was a 10 mile run. So this was a go/no go for the marathon I have scheduled in 2 weeks, and I will call it a success! Yes, it was only 10 miles...but I don't want to damage my knee. What I wanted to see was if the run/walk would work for keeping my knee feeling OK, and so far, I say it did. I ended up running a mile, then walking a quarter mile, and so on through the run. It took me an hour and 50 minutes, just under a 12 min mile on average.

I will monitor and see how I feel in the next couple of days, I also found a great youtube video on 3 PT exercises for chondromalacia patella, and I will give those a try, one is a stretch for the quadriceps, one is foam rolling the quad, and the last is a reverse lunge on a slide device.

I should be in taper mode now, so I'm keeping that in mind, and will keep my weekday runs shorter. I do find my knee seems to stiffen the more I sit, so I think some activity is good for the joint.

    Sounds good all around, teammate. That's terrific how you're looking things up and applying them to your need and making sure you are careful but exercising well.

    emoticon Good luck in your runs. I have a similar problem with my knee - stiffening more when I sit, so I am trying to be as active as problem!
