So.. I'm pretty down right now.

The last few day I have felt a little click in my one knee when I walked so I haven't been running or doing much of anything on my legs. There was never any pain, but I wanted to be safe. I woke up today and it wasn't clicking so I thought I would do some exercise on my elliptical as there isnt much stress on joints but still a good work out. Well, 3 minutes in to my light warm-up I knew something wasn't right, so I called it quits. I felt a weird burning sensation but no real pain. The click is back, and gradually though the day, pain has been building. I am going to head to the walk-in tomorrow to get it checked out STAT.. but I can't help but get down on myself.
If I didn't let myself get so fat, this would probably not be happening. I'm 28 and having issues with my knees and I'm NOT an athlete. It is just sad really..

I am so scared it is going to be something preventing me from my running and I'll lose this huge passion I have to succeed. And we all know that something like this is a sure downwards spiral to a whole bunch of bad habits returning.

I need to stay strong, but I also need this to be something very very minor.

Wish me luck....

    My knee acts up now and then. The first thing I do is roll my IT bands. If you have a tight IT band from lots of walking or running it really throws off your knee and hips.

    Or do a spark search for 'Tight It band'.

    You have to take care of yourself. I agree, focus on eating and upper body if necessary to get you through. You can do this, believe in yourself. emoticon

    I hope it gets taken care of. If you end up not being able to run, use the elliptical, or in other ways use your knee for anything outside of life's activities, you could consider joining a gym and using the rowing machines there. Or, depending on how long it will be until you can get back at the running, try a "free trial" for a gym. I know many offer 7-day free passes.

    Worst comes to worst, do your best with the "nutrition" part and do what you can. You may not be able to do knee motions, but you can still do some toning, especially in the upper body region :)
