Do any of my followers know anything about runner's knee? I have pretty much self-diagnosed myself with this!
After the Cooper River Bridge Run I started feeling a weird pain in my knee. I had jumper's knee in high school, so I started wrapping my knees like I did for basketball for my next few runs. In my last 5k, I really noticed my knee hurt during and after my run.
After doing a little online research and asking a few running friends, I think it is runner's knee. I don't think there is a need to go to the doctor, but I have been taking Advil, icing, and heating.
I also bought some of this KT tape which was all the rage at the Olympics last summer. My cousin Adam told me about this stuff, but I haven't had the guts to go out for a run yet and use it.
I mean the colors are pretty cool, right?
I have a 12k which is my longest race yet a WEEK from this Saturday and I am absolutely freaking out because I haven't run in almost a week. I was hoping lots of rest would help. Ehh, not feeling too much relief quite yet.
Have you ever used KT tape? Did it work?
Do you have runners knee?? What did you do to help!?!?
