I have been "resting" my knee for more than two weeks now. One run in almost a month. The runner's knee scare had me see an orthopedist who had recommended I perform inner quad strengthening exercises since he suspected the reason to be a muscle imbalance pulling my patella off center. I've been doing these straight leg quad contractions 50 reps twice a day for a week now and have been given instruction to test out running again in a week. I have a knee brace to use when I do, but it will feel good to get back out and run again. I gotta train again and revise the plan to fit a new time goal.
