Let’s add knee pain to the mix.

So, beside the (still persistent) minor pain in my left glute and some pain I picked up last week in the middle of my back, I now picked up a pain in my left knee. Yesterday, I twisted wrong on it twice, and now I have a nagging pain in what feels like a ligament or tendon (I can never tell the difference between the two). Now, it’s not really bad pain; just a minor one if I step wrong or forget it’s there and do something stupid. Will that stop me from running today? Probably not. I’m still going to try to get out there. I may not run very fast, or set any distance records, but I will get out there and I will run. I find that often, when I have little nagging pains like that in my knees, the pain subsides or completely disappears after the first quarter of a mile.

I’m hoping for that today. I can’t stand the way I feel when I don’t run (and I actually like how I feel after a run). What’s wrong with me?
