Retro Run Pics and The Knee

If you missed my recap, you can read it here.

They might not have had water, but they had photographers at a few points on the course:

The Knee

I had PT yesterday afternoon and the woman was MYSTIFIED at my pain. She seemed annoyed that I couldn't better pinpoint it and that certain tests weren't hurting when she thought they should. My "homework" until I go back on Thursday is four different exercises designed to strengthen my hips/gluts. FYI, I can definitely TELL that I'm weak there as just doing these simple things were pretty hard. Huh. So there you go.

In other news... I ran TWO WHOLE MILES last night on the treadmill at my regular(ish) run pace - 10:17 and my knee did not hurt. (I had permission from the PT to run - she suggested I do all my runs for a while on the treadmill if at all possible). I'm waiting to hear back from my coach on where we go from here.

  3. My PT was never able to give me a diagnosis from my knee pain either because it was so random. I could do plyo jumps like no problem, go up stairs, - it was just the running that hurt.

    The homework they gave me ended up being a part-time job because each week I'd get another sheet of moves to add in. I know when I was diligent in doing the moves, the pain was gone, but I was also only running 1-2 miles at a time.

  4. Those pictures turned out awesome!

    I'm impressed that you ran 2 miles on the treadmill. That's 2 miles more than I can stand on that thing.

  5. Bummer they couldn't figure out what was up with your knee, I am going to PT this week for the first time and hope they aren't clueless with me. Love all the great pictures! Looks like fun!

  6. I'm glad you were able to get a pain-free run in! Hopefully your PT will figure out what the heck is going on. It's so frustraing when something is wrong but you can't figure out why there's a problem. Also, your race pics are adorable--thanks for sharing them! I love the bright orange socks!

  8. I had anterior knee pain, back in May. It's really related o an old hamstring injury. I will never undermine the power of a good stretch. I still tape it on long runs and track work outs - love RockTape 'cause it sticks even when you sweat. Good luck!

  13. loving these pictures! looks like you guys had a lot of fun!

    also, if you aren't satisfied with your PT... mine is AMAZING and would happily send you her way!

    also, the quaky chiro i went to told me to run on nothing but a treadmill too. ...it turned out that wasn't exactly what was best for me.. AT ALL. made it worse.

    i'm now running on flat dirt bike paths. not sure if you have any in your area. just remember that treadmill running can simulate downhill running & can tend to jerk your legs back.

    maybe research it a little!
