I've got to admit I was following another runner and found that's what kept me going for the last 5 mins as my ...

Re: Knee problem

Yep still doing the treadmill :cry: and for the foreseeable future too. I saw my doc this morning and he said I've twisted the tendon/ ligament ( sorry can't remember what he called it) that runs down the side of the knee. But is gonna take some time to repair itself but the good news is that I can ...

Re: Knee problem

Yeah the swimming went ok although I could defiantly feel it in my knee but that's good I think, so I tried a gentle run on the treadmill to see how that felt and that was good, managed 15 mins non stop so I think until I'm seen by the doc/ physio I'll stick to the treadmill for the time being. I kn...
