Day 25 – Knee bursitis 

1 Comment

Grrr. Having been careful of my painful right hip (which seems to be better, by the way), I now have some mild pain in my right knee – especially when walking up or downstairs.
The symptoms (self diagnosed) sound like Pes Anserine Bursitis. Irritatingly, according to this article, it can be caused by running (which I have avoided) and swimming (which I have been doing in replacement of running!).
Now I’m feeling old. Perhaps my achy 50-year-old bones are not up to the Janathon challenge anymore! Or perhaps I’ve just pushed myself too much?

I found some simple and quick exercises to strengthen the knee:

Walk: 2.7 miles
Yoga: 30 minutes
