Well I have a really sore and stiff knee after yesterdays long run ! In fact it was sore last week and I thought I had knocked it playing football but it has persisted and is the worst it's been right now.
No pain when my leg is straight but on bending or crouching down I am getting a lot of pain and it is very stiff and not so flexible as my leftknee. If I do a squat type movement I really feel it and would be unable to complete squats in the gym. The main pain is along the front to the right of my knee cap if I am looking down. It is far worse when my knee is bent and I guess the main pain is where the quad meets the knee cap.
Reading a lot about runners knee but I am not sure if the pain related to that injury should be along the outside of the knee cap ?
If you only did your long run last night I'd give it another 24 to 48 hours before worrying.
You are kind of supposed to feel it a bit after a long run!
I actually pasted the above off another thread so the long run was Sunday and it's now Thursday so I have not ran since. I have been icing and taking Ibuprofen and although it's not right it has improved. I am away for the weekend and I am hoping I will be able to start running again next week.
Supposed to be doing the Stroud Half on the 25th of October so I am hoping I will be able to get back asap
