That was easy.<br><br>
Of course you can still discuss injuries in the main thread, but consider this the Honeycomb hideout for all things fuckity (medically speaking). <img alt="icon_salut.gif" src="">

I hate that we have to have this thread but thanks for doing it JB. I'm not sure what I'm dealing with yet but I'll know tomorrow morning. I'm fairly certain it's a torn meniscus and tendonitis in the patellar tendon from running on an unstable knee for two months. Either way, I'm not able to run, bike, swim, etc until I get it fixed. It's very painful and frustrating!<br><br>
The cool thing is that I got some great stuff to look at from the MRI.
Please get it checked out asap!! I hope it's just something minor but listen to it if it won't stop being fuckity.
Hey everyone-<br><br>
JB - sorry to hear that you are dealing with this crap. I know that this endless winter isn't helping! I now do so many stretches and my "functional warm-up" as my PT calls it that they take longer than the runs I'm doing right now. Maybe you can find some stretches that will do a lot for you in one stretch. I have this great stretch that my PT calls the spiderman and it is a great way to get ready to run. If you get into position like you're going to do a push up and then bring one foot up to your hand on the outside (like spidey climbing a building). Kind of like a really exaggerated lunge low to the ground. you hold that stretch then switch legs and in between switching legs do a push up. I bet that description makes no sense - sorry. I'll see if I can find it online.<br><br>
Nicole - you will learn to love the bike, dammit. the bike is your friend. I have a HM at the end of May, too, and I've accepted the fact that I might still be doing my 6min run/1min walk routine for the whole HM. I refuse to not do the HM! You'll be OK, just keep the goal in mind.<br><br>
Rogue - sorry about the PF. It's such a pain in the ass and can take forever to conquer. I hope you get past it soon! (I had a DD Boston Cream donut today...oops)<br><br>
I'm happy to say that my knee is getting better. It's been a long and frustrating road but I think I'm on the mend. I really messed it up and subsequently injured some of the ligaments and tendons that support my knee by trying to run through it. I'm able to run every other day now and am slowly building up my run time. Right now I'm doing 1min walk/6-8min run repeated for 35min or so. I feel good. I know that x-training and strength training are going to have to remain a big part of my training from now on.<br><br>
Good luck to everyone dealing with injuries!
