Knee pain

leave a comment »

So I think I figured out what’s been causing the sharp pain in my knee. My injury has a name: Iliotibial Band Syndrome (ITBS).

Doesn’t make it hurt any less. But it’s good to know.

According to this page, sudden mileage increase could cause it. Maybe I need to warm up more. It could also be caused by the shoes. Will try another pair today and see how I feel. Maybe the current shoes have expired.
