But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Aug 29th, 2017
I have been training for the London Duathlon and after a 7k run this week have noticed that my right knee clicks upon standing with a slight ping (elastic band like) as I do so.
I am keen to avoid injury and would appreciate any advice to nip this in the bud.
But the Guru needs more info…
Depends if your ping is painful or not and where it is.
Noise that comes from your knee WITHOUT pain (and swelling and locking and giving way) is not an issue.
There maybe a sight, very small expectation to this rule and that’s if you feel that the click comes from the outside (lateral) side of knee during to first 1/4 of knee bend.
If you’ve got this, then it may be indicative that your insertion of your ITB is flicking across the outside of your knee joint and if you don’t change something and carry on running then you may (and only a may) have issues later.
Let me know!
Thanks for the prompt response.
There is no pain or locking. The ping/ clicking appears to be at the mid point of my knee and tends to only happen when extending my leg from seated to standing. Not apparent when I’m walking. No pain either, it’s just a bit disconcerting.
I am not a seasoned runner but have been training hard and want to avoid getting injured at this stage.
The Guru Responded:
Should be OK – if you’re a new runner and training hard do make sure you are not trying to do too much too soon and you’re mixing up your training schedule up with some gym, swim, Pilates type stuff that gets you out of the very linear action of running.
Lots of people get very concerned about knee noise, but it really is absolutely OK – any pain, and it’s not!
