I had a similar thing going on. Turned out that extra quad and IT band stretching made the pain and tightness go away immediately. I think it was the tight muscles pulling on the tendons around my knee that caused the pain. Good luck!

Glad to see you back Carolyn! I'd hold off on the HM.

Glad, very sorry to hear of your bad luck.
Also sorry that I can't express opinion. I know that I've made many wrong decisions....
I'll keep you in my thoughts and follow this thread to see what others say.

If it really hurts, I would put it up for a while with ice and Advil.

Hi gang - it's been awhile since I've been around. I was sidelined for a few months in the fall, but am finally getting my speed and endurance back. That is, until I kind of screwed up my knee doing bridge work. It wasn't my first time doing bridgework since coming back, and I had been running the same bridge for a few weeks about twice a week. It's not even a big bridge. So I'm not sure what happened or what I did.

Anyway, after one evening of doing bridge repeats, the next day my knee felt a little tight. It's a week later and still tight, especially when I get up after sitting for awhile. It also hurts around the side and behind the knee for the first few steps. Once I start walking, however, it loosens up and I have no pain, and just a little tightness. I'm thinking I strained the calf muscle at the attachment point behind the knee. I am icing it, using Biofreeze, rolling, and lightly stretching it.

I can't go to a doctor because I have no health insurance right now, and I won't have any until April. I am able to run on it, and running doesn't seem to make it worse - it actually seems to loosen it up and it feels better. That is, until I go back to sitting again. It also doesn't feel bad when I get up in the morning - it's just when I've been sitting.

I ran 7 miles on it last Sunday and 2 tonight. I plan to do my first HM of the season at the end of March (which by the way has a really BIG bridge). So my question is - would you run on it or not run on it?
