Hi there,

So here's the update on my knee situation.
I went to Physio today, nice wee place and the guy was pretty cool and helpful. So down to the nitty gritty, it appears to be my old knee cap, it's rolling around too much, because of kind of degeneration, doesn't that sound lovely!! Well what he did was give me a wee massage, some electrolysis and then some laser treatment. Then he strapped my knee up, which is great for keeping it all in place. He then gave me some exercises to do to build up strength, and I have to do literally hundreds of them a day to ensure I strengthen everything up.
I was planning on running today, but he told me not to, and go for my next run on Wednesday, and if the strap is still on my knee by then to keep it there. He's then going to phone me on thursday and see how it went.
Sooo the jist of it all is it's fixable, I just have to always do my exercises and keep the faith :) I'm really glad I went now, because I didn't have a clue what to do, I wouldn't have known I had a slack knee joint. If I hadn't have went it just would have gotten worse the more I upped my miles, more and more agrrevation and inflammation..

I love it when I'm right!! Glad it's fixable though.

But really, coloured socks with trainers?!

So how are u right then? Lol
Haha regarding the socks the shoes were only on to show the physio, not for training purposes.
Hope it is actually fixable :/
