Thanks, Bobby! It's all better now. I am pretty cautious when it comes to injuries, so I like to err on the side of caution and consult with people who know better than I(you guys!)... Icing helped tremendously. I'll run in the morning and keep you posted. I've been stretching and doing plenty of yoga (had been slacking on yoga last week), which is always helpful! Stepf
sciatica and swelling can do that. also an IT band issue, if you have no pain give it a day or so before you call dr's. if all is good give the legs another spin it may have just been some freaky thing like many runners have

I do it because i can, I can because I want to, I want to because you said I couldn't.
Hi, everyone! Because of time constraints, I've not been running much since my 10K on Thanksgiving. I've been doing maybe two three-milers a week. Yesterday, I did a great 3.75 mile run, came home and stretched thoroughly. Later I went to a party and stood for about three hours. Last night, I noticed a weird feeling in my right knee--sort of tingly. It didn't hurt at all. Today, I realized by entire knee is numb! I have no plans to run today or do much else until I figure this out. My questions for you: Have you experienced this? Is this normal, something that I just need to rest for a couple of days, or is this something extraordinary? Do I wait it out or call the doctor. If I wait it out, I won't be doing any cardio. Thanks! Stepf
