Recovery is more important than progression, and preventing further injury takes priority, so avoid doing anything that could aggravate your current condition.
Now, training around injury limitations is a good idea but since you're already in physical therapy I'd ask your therapist to help sort out what you can and can't do. It's highly possible that you can do some single-leg work and a fair bit of therapeutic drills as replacement for the leg part of the program but figuring out what's safe and useful for you to do does require some in-person assessment of your movement capabilities and rehab needs so I'd hold off on any leg exercises until after you've been to see the therapist.
I run and cycle. If it is strengthening your quads you want, focus on cycling.
Heh? You have "Runner's Knee" yet dr says it's ok to keep running? This does not seem logical to me.
I would not run that is for sure and I wouldn't do anything without the ok from the PT for now.
Also I had an injury in April and couldn't workout for 6 weeks, yes I lost some strength and am still building back up, but I am also not hitting the gym as hard as I did before said injury.
I would rest and recover and heal and then go back to the lifting. Just watch the diet carefully so you don't lose any gains in that area ( that seems weird, but you want to keep the losses and not gain!)
That does seem weird that she has runner's knee but she can run?? What kind of sense does that make?
Doc says that the bruised part isn't on the femur and if I have no pain while running, then its ok. PT agreed, too. Basically I have to listen to my body. I'm going to pause on NROLFW for a while and simply cycle, and do physical therapy. My utmost goal is to strengthen my quads. I may run once or twice a week for my sanity as my quads get stronger. (Buying some better shoes to fit me too, because I'm knock-kneed.) Haven't ran in 12 days and am having major running withdrawals. :)
Can someone please delete this post, moderators? I'm done with it please.
That's not how forums work. The threads with our answers will be useful for other people with the same questions in the future, like the ones specifically highlighted in the FAQ. Therefore, the tread will remain - it will just be a lot less useful now and a lot less helpful to other people with similar questions in the future.
