Training for IMCH was going well until last weekend, when I developed a very painful knee whilst out running which appears to match the symptons for Runners Knee. I was away for a few days so deliberately decided not to train. I've been doing appropriate stretches in order to help.
After a week's rest I did a longish bike ride yesterday, and it feels a bit painful again, but I'm anxious not to miss training whilst being aware that it could do more harm than good, So...
swimming - yes/no?
cycling - yes/no?
running - yes/no?
Runner's knee, aka ITBFS.
No cycling, no running.
Get it looked at ASAP.
Front crawl is fine, main issue with ITBFS is the bending of the knee which aggravates the IT Band.
