TJB - Bad news, hope things improve mate.
Went out for an experimental run this morning and it was not a success. Coughing and spluttering after 6/7 mins; I was returning too early so cut the loop short and headed home. After 10 mins I got a sharp pain on the inside of my left knee - I had the same pain when walking on the first of my 6 non-running days. A little bit worrying that all the rest hasn't solved it Contacted the fizz and now consider myself double-benched, certainly until Tues when the house move should be done.
For anyone attempting a diagnosis, I can do single leg squats with no pain, there's no swelling, can't find a sore sport and the pain isn't on landing, it's as I bend the leg. I thought it might be adductor tightness but rolled that (and everywhere else) with no issues. Pain isn't easy to pinpoint but feels like it's on the outside of the kneecap itself. I think I could run through it, but seems sensible to rest and get it looked, especially given that I'm still not 100% recovered from lurgy.
