An hour east of Ashville --- I'm jealous. Lots of great hiking out that way. Hope we meet up some day!

I am sorry to hear that your knee hurts when you run. RICE ...rest elevate ice and compression

Hard to take time off when your training and you love to run but better to be safe than to make it worse

Feel better soon.

I wii be kind to my body in 2014; eat well, hydrate often, exercise & rest

Wishing you the best! Such a fine line between staying in shape and overdoing it and making it worse. I'd just really listen to your body and be careful. Hope the pain goes away soon!

@BUDDHA33 -- I LOVE backpacking. My husband and I used to do it a lot more but it has been slow the last year. We live about an hour east of Ashville, so we do the NC Mountains a lot! Fun to meet another backpacker from NC!

I did 2 days of low impact. Biking, and even the elliptical. Didn't hurt at all. Tried to run yesterday and the pain was back and bad. Not sure what to do. I hope it's nothing serious but I am getting frustrated.

I agree with nat....if it doesnt hurt go ahead
On a side note i found wrapping with KT tape helped my shin splints, perhaps it would help you as well

Cheers

Hello! This is not a reply to your knee question. Just wanted to say hello and tell you I'm also a backpacker from NC. I live not far from raleigh. have packed 99 % of App. Trail in NC and a few other states. Uwharrie has a doable weekend hike if you haven't done that yet. Happy Trails...

You can give the bike or elliptical a try and see if they bother it or not. Also, if it doesn't hurt to walk, you can walk.
Hope it feels better soon.

I am training for my first half marathon that I am running in March. I took the weekend off and went on a 14 mile backpacking trip, so much fun. I seem to have hurt my knee though. Not seriously, at least I hope not, but just hurts a little to run. I know I shouldn't run on it, and make it worse, but you think it would be okay to ride a bike at the gym or something low-impact? I don't want to hurt it more, but I hate not to do anything... suggestions :-(
