But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Feb 22nd, 2017
I’m now seeing one of your physios on Wednesday morning. Am training for
marathon. Last weekend did 12 mile training run – no problems. During the
week, feet and heels started to hurt. Did 13 mile run yesterday – everything
hurt from beginning of run to end. At mile 11-12, my knee felt like it had
actually popped/clicked out and gave way. Went back in place.
So – what strengthening exercises / stretches should I do this PM? Should I
do my 4 mile run tomorrow. I can walk around no problems but I can “feel” my
The Guru Responded:
It actually sounds as if you’ve done too much too soon – a slightly risky thing to say considering I don’t know your training plan, but it sounds about right.
But it sounds like you’ve got an overuse issue (everything hurts) and a slightly dodgy kneecap thing going on (I’m not sure your knee popped/clicked out, but I’m sure it felt like it did….which probably translates into your knee was acutely painful and your supporting muscles suddenly switched off as a saving mechanism).
Recovery is actually as (if not more) important compared to activity. Hang out to tonight and tomorrow and wait until you’ve seen Helen on Wednesday.
If you’ve got a foam roller use it, if you’ve got a static bike leap on if for a 20 minutes easy cycle. No run tomorrow but you could try to tape your knee a la this vid!
Don’t panic, plenty of time but make sure you do the right stuff rather than just stuff…
