What does that kind of test cost? I know triathletes go through all sorts of hoops to save a couple seconds or minutes though it seems these efforts would be good for people who want to race near their limits the entire race.
How many miles did you run today? - Page 596
or when jogging running.
Patellar tendinitis caused by improper patellar tracking, most likely. Happens a lot.
Take some anti-inflammatories (I like Aleve) and rest a bit. Maybe do some squats.
When the pain goes away, make sure to do some squats (or at least leg extensions, but those have fewer benefits).
And IME rest means lay off the running for a while shoe dude... even a couple of weeks or more if that's what it takes to stop hurting. You'll lose some conditioning, but it beats the hell out aggravating it into a more serious injury.
$225 for test, results on paper w/ interpretations, and doctor consultation after.
I think all the hills probably contributed to the injury - it was an extremely hilly course with lots of very steep hills, which I wasn't used to, so my legs were working overtime to get through those sections. I'm still glad I was able to run across the finish line, but I have a new goal for my next half. The next one I'm signed up for is much flatter, so I definitely think I can do that in under 2:00.
SB - Some days pains just come along and we have to take it easy. Any ideas of what caused it?
Beatle - I had the same issue when going from flat land to hills while on a weekend trip a couple of years back. Caused all sorts of issues but now I am used to hills.
As for me I got in some good weekend runs. I put in a 6 mile effort yesterday which felt good. Going to be a busy week so trying to figure out how much running I can put in. My training schedule really doesn't have me starting until December for a March race.
Congratulations, Beatlegeuse! Sorry that it didn't go as planned, but you'll certainly do better next time.
CP - Ouch! I have not taken a tumble in a which but had hit my toe pretty hard quite a few times.
I got in 4.5 miles last night which felt good. What does everyone use to keep themselves visible in the dark? I have some reflective items but do not know if they really help drivers that much.
