After Desaru half ironman, I had a nearly 100% rest till this evening. That's one and a half weeks without running and cycling. I dare not say swimming cos...err...cos...ok ok I did swim. But not even close to 500m...it was just a cool down dip on Sunday afternoon as I couldn't stand the blistering heat.
This evening I was with Pacesetters exco and Klang area group members doing a short run at Taman Rakyat, Andalas. Did 1 loop jog or 4.2km or 1/10th of a marathon. Hahaha!
Bad news when I stopped...my knees felt tight and both were sore! It was difficult to walk! Felt as if the knees were semi locked.
Why? How? What?
I thought the rest was improving them...hmm....
What's going on? Not enough rest? Knees were sleeping?
Maybe my pair of 'kasut batu' working shoes is causing it. I walk with it 3km every weekday...to office...in office...going home. Pounding on hard sole could be the problem. This is my 3rd month walking so much with it.
I better get a pair of walking... working... shoes, I mean working shoes that is good to walk in...or walking shoes that can be used to work. Or I just paint my running shoes black!
Whatever may have caused it, I need to get to the bottom of this. Can't leave them in pain and uneasiness.
My knees need help!!
