My left knee hurts. While sitting still. I noticed at lunch today.
I have not been to an orthopedic doctor in a whole year. I haven’t done that in a long time. I realized this just the other day: One whole year. I find this to be exciting. I ran a whole season without injury! (Minus shin splints, but that didn’t require a trip to the doctor, just a love affair with KT Tape).
But now my knee hurts. And I don’t know why. It didn’t hurt yesterday after my run. A totally normal 5.5 mile run. I didn’t slip or twist it. Nothing happened.
Is the pain real? Am I just feeling pain because I’m paranoid?
Why left knee? Why?
I have a strong hate for orthopedic injuries. When you have your first knee surgery at age 11 it kind of ruins everything. I think college was my most injury free phase. It might have something to do with my laziness during some of those years, but whatever.
I need the pain to go away. Right now.
