This week at work was another One of Those Weeks (tm), so I had a lot of time to think as I lay awake at night completely unable to sleep. I got to wondering why my knee felt fine and then all of a sudden started killing me when I ran the other day. It wasn't gradual, it was just fine, fine, ow!
So I went for another run today, and tested a theory. When I run, it hurts if I go uphill. I ran 2 miles today, and then purposefully took a hill. Almost as soon as I got on the hill, sure enough, there was my knee. I stopped running immediately, walked down and walked home, and I feel fine now.
The doc said that stairs would be the thing that hurt most when I was first injured, and it seems to makes sense than hills would be a similar motion.
So I think I have a handle on my limitations right now, which means that I can at least start getting back in shape while I work out the kinks.
