I am new to this board but am really enjoying it so far.
I am a 32 and want to be in the next olympics for the 100 and 200m..Yes,this is a very high goal but all things are possible.
Mon-sat i workout on weights and i usually sprint the 50m
4x and then i used to jog 2miles a day until my knee started bugging me..It is my left knee..I think it is ITBS but i am not sure since i have not been diagnosed by a doc.Today i was laying on my stomach and tryed slowly moving my left leg up from off the bed to a 90degree angle and there was some pretty major pain there.
I have had this for a couple weeks maybe more.I usually don’t feel it walking only if i jog to long or slow..When i sprint i don’t feel the pain or walking doesn’t bug it….As far as what i have done to help it,i have cut way back on jogging to only a fast mile and i stopped all my 50lb leg curls…So this is my knee story sort of and since i have this huge goal of the olympics i can’t afford this knee problem..
What do sprinters do? especially those who are planning on racing? should i totally stop everything or keep going since it doesn’t really hurt during sprints?
ANy help would be so nice
