hurt the inside of my right knee while jogging, my ? is should i try to keep jogging today and maybe work it out or stay off for a day or two, i really like jogging and dont want to sit around so please tell me what i should do ?
STOP! I'm a track coach, and my philosophy is that if it hurts stop. If I see them hobbling I tell them to quit. Pain is there to warn us that something isn't right. I tell the kids that it is better to miss a few days than a season.
Take a few days off. Take ibuprofen twice a day. Put ice on it. You'll probably back to normal in a week or so. If not seek medical care.
