Isn't this a kick in the crotch. Went to the doctor today about my knee. It was pretty painful today so I thought I'd better get it checked out before I started training for summer races.

Right knee has a nice nasty case of arthritis. What can I do? Nada. Nothing. Okay, not really. Ice before and after a run. Take a pain reliever.

Shit.

That sucks! Can you bike instead, or is that just as bad?

or even pool running. it's so nerdy, but i kept my fitness up. that's a bummer.

are there other options? have you ever done alternative therapy? people here are really open to it.

Biking would be okay since it doesn't have the pounding on the knees as running. I do love biking, which I think is MUCH harder than running.

Pool running? Hmmmmmmmmm...that sounds cool -- in the I am cool chick sense and the it will keep you cool.
