I just finished my 5K walking program and I was planning to move on to the 5K walk/job program but one of my knees has been bothering me. My husband suggested it is a bursitis problem and to prove him wrong I went online to look up the symptoms. It turns out I may have developed a type of bursitis I didn't know about. The name is unusual - something like "pes anserus". Anyway, based on the descriptions I read, it sounds exactly like what I have. One of the causes is obesity another a sudden increase in milage...yep, that sounds right. Anyway, I am treating myself with rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory agents. Bummer!
I was really starting to get into the walking. I actually walked much more than the 5K program suggested - gues that's why. Obviously, I need to lose weight! But I dislike exercise so much and walking was really meeting that need.
Anyone have any advice or words of encouragement?
I had another thought and I would like your input. Before I started the walking program I bought a new pair of light running shoes. They are nice and bouncy and added to my enjoyment of walking. Do you think the "bounce" could have added to this injury?
