I just ran my first marathon a little over two weeks ago and haven't run
since. For about two days after the marathon the outside of my knee was
quite sore but went away. Last night I tried to go out and run but couldn't
even do a mile because my knee kept feeling like it was locking up on the
outside and felt like something needed to pop to relieve pressure. It is on
the outside of my left knee and doesn't hurt at all when I'm not running.
There doesn't appear to be any swelling but when I put my fingers against
the side of my knee and bend it I can feel and sometimes hear it pop.
Anyone have any ideas on what this could be....I'm thinking runners knee or
itbs but not sure how to overcome this setback. I really want to get back
out there and start running again.
