One step forward and two steps back....? Went to the gym this morning with the same intention as the last couple of days. Began with a 1.5 mile easy run on the Treadmill, high rep wieghts then another 1.5 miles on the treadmill, weights, 1.5 miles on the Eliptical, weights, and another 1.5 miles on the treadmill. Thought things were good but now, after an hour or so my knee is pretty sore.
Here's my diagnoses....
It's very common for the quadriceps tendon to develop tendonitis, especially in professional athletes. The quadriceps tendon runs from the bottom of the quadriceps muscle down the front of the knee underneath the patellar (knee cap). If you have quadriceps tendonitis you will feel the pain directly above your knee cap. In some cases, the pain may extend up the front of the leg. The pain will feel worse when you sit down, or bring your foot up towards your buttocks. This is because the quadriceps tendon and muscle have to stretch. You may also find if you have quadriceps tendonitis that the area where your quadriceps meet your knee cap there might be some redness and swelling.
I will attach tendons to you and make flesh come upon you and cover you with skin; I will put breath in you, and you will come to life. Then you will know that I am the LORD.’”
