dyk, after a few mishaps (um, shuttle from the hotel doesn't run between 12 & 4?!?!?), I'm happy

dyk, this is my last trip out of NY until October, I wonder how I'll feel about NY after being 'stuck' there for the next few weeks

dyk, is it the front of your knee or the side of your knee?

dyk, if it's the outer side, it might actually be your IT band

dyk,if it's not the front (knee cap), you could try foam rolling it

dyk, rolling is supposed to be good for sore legs as well

dyk, after a run, it can help move/break up any lactic acid build up. At other times, it's like a REALLY good massage - if it's done right it hurts.

dyk, but in a good way...although sometimes even laying on the roller is painful

dyk, although the hot feeling may answer my question about location

dyk, I've never heard of any part of the knee being 'hot' except the knee cap

dyk, did you pull something?

Dyk Jennie , your injury sounds exactly like the one I had a while back
Dyk from what my myotherapist said I had Strained muscle that helps stabilize the knee cap and it was hurting as its way of telling me it couldn't handle the training I was doing yet and it needed a bit more time to adjust.
Dyk accultunture and massage helped , Along with ice and rest.
Dyk I had to have a few days off and then work at 60 percent of normal
Dyk bike riding/ spin classes help strengthen it also
Dyk injury is very annoying !

dyk, in case anyone else had a sub-par education, yesterday I learned that it was actually the Pennsylvanians that founded America

dyk, I believe my friend begins the US History part of her curriculum next week

dyk, I'm not sure which timing device I prefer, they bithhave their pros & cons

dyk, B-Tags are good because I don't have to worry about them falling off...but I'm always paranoid that I'll bend one and it won't work (and I have bent them, but not enough to break them) - they do NOT Kay flat on me

dyk, D-Tags are good because for the most part I don't worry about bending it, once it's looped, it's good as long as it's not smashed, but I do worry about it falling off my shoe laces (even though it's pretty secure)

dyk, this is what hoes through my mind when I'm alone at a race start...my friend & her kids are eating breakfast
