I had to cut my 12 mile run short today. I made it 7.2.
Around mile 7, when my right foot landed, it felt like my knee locked. I was cruising along just fine, then the knee locked, and I felt pain behind the knee cap. I walked for a while. I was able to run again, but the pain got pretty bad so I walked the rest of the way back.
This happened to me last week while I was out with my husband on a 4 mile run. I walked it off with him and we finished strong. There was no strong finish today. It hurts to go up and down steps. Walking is OK. It does not hurt just to swing the knee while sitting.
Runners...what's your prognosis? I iced it after the run. I'm supposed to do a 5K on Wednesday night.
