{DL} New knee pain.... but at least it was pretty out

Just when you think things are going well.

I've been making better times - building up a good endurance on running - keeping my  heartrate at a good level & not huffing & puffing - actually enjoying running lately...

... & then it happens ... all over again.

Knee pain.

I'm used to it.

I've had it my whole life - know I'll always have it - but this is a new knee pain.

& its getting bad. Like, I am limping kinda bad.

I'm trying not to get discouraged because I know the routine.  Rest, ice, keep it up. 

Been there ... done that... many times.

I'm also trying to keep my attitude in check knowing that it will heal up.  Time is what it takes.

I'm just bummed thinking that I'm going to miss out on this beautiful fall weather to run in. This is only one time a year... who wants to miss it.

I pushed it last night when I went for another run.

I forgot I had my glasses on my head till half way through my run....

I ended up having to brace up both knees & it actually isn't enough. I need a full knee brace with the pain in my left leg right now... sigh....

Ricky keeps getting on me to just STOP for now.... but I don't wanna. 

Yes, I'm great at throwing 2 yr old tantrums....

I may just keep doing my strength training videos & enjoy the weather with nice relaxing walks.  That counts as something - right?

Fall y'all:
How do you not go running with colors like this around you?
Anyone else struggle with constant knee pain?
Any tips on running with knee pain?


  1. Oh no....any idea of what is causing that knee pain?

    1. I've always had knee issues - but this one is new. Its right in front of my knee & my knee feels swollen though it doesn't look swollen. I'm just going to try & take it easy & see if time & ice helps. Fingers crossed!

    2. Hi there, Knee joint pain is a common problem with many causes, from acute injuries to medical conditions. Normally people will believe surgery is the only way to relief knee pain, in fact, some may ask how to cure knee pain without surgery. Yes there are ways like using Unloading bracing technology, having ergo mattress etc. More information:

  2. You'll hate my advice, but if it were me I would stay off it. Pain is a side of a problem, and you need to fix the problem before you can get on it, otherwise and especially in the knees you could end up ruining things for life.
    If it's not better in a couple of weeks of rest then, I would definitely see a Dr,
    I know, that isn't want you wanted, but because of all I have had to go through the past almost 3 years, I am a little cautious:) A few days/weeks off running is better than years or life, thats how I look at it.
    I do hope you heal quick though, my friend!

  3. oh no :( i am so so sorry you are experiencing more / new knee pain. i hope you can fix it soon!

  4. Oh I completely understand what you are going through. I've been good for a while and then BAM, the pain comes back without warning!
    Are you training for a particular race now? If not maybe you should rest a while. *Hugs*

  5. Ugh - I'm sorry about the knee pain and know what you're going through. I had a dislocated kneecap about 20 years ago which dashed my Olympic dreams. Just kidding - it was on the bunny slope at Paoli -- but the pain was real then and now ... and I've been babying it along since starting running. Ice and rest and stretching (yoga - sorry!) is my MO.

    1. Ice is my best friend. ... I know, I know. I need to start making up with Yoga & liking it. Humph
