5 miles :) Slight knee pain...

Ran 5 miles on the treadmill today. I woke up way too late to run outside and I have class until 9pm tonight so no running after class :(

Knee felt pretty good! Got a little sore around 4.5-5 miles which is exactly what the physical therapist told me would probably happen. I guess we'll just keep it at this point and keep strengthening the VMO muscle and hope that we can raise that threshold little by little :)

Anyone else with runners' knee that wants to pass on tips??? I think I'm finally emotionally ready to take advice from people ;)


  1. Great job! Cycling always helped me when I had knee issues.

    You may also want to try some yoga for the knees. I use this 20 minute podcast:

    And here are some good yoga poses for knees

  2. I have no advice for runner's knee. I know when I had ITBS pain at my knee, my mileage slowly built up farther and farther without pain. Just takes time to heal these things I guess.

    Sending good healing thoughts your knee's way. :)

  3. Come back to the blog world!! You are missed!! :(

  4. I don't have advice for runners knee either but great job on the run! Hope it's feeling better for you! :0)
