TABARNAC DE GENOU....

That's French... and not a kind word.... my knee let me down... I could only do 4/18 miles planned...

Mile 1 : A breeze, bring it on!
Mile 2: What! My knee's acting funny! (it doesn't hurt but it's on the way... this usually happens at mile 12!!!)
Mile 3: OMG, this freakin' hurts, start crying
Mile 4: This is insane, it hurts so much, I had to give up.... and then more crying

I had to walk back part of it and then I took the bus. I feel like a quitter, a failure... my mental state is not the best. I'm doubting myself, what if my body can't hold on? This is hard, I guess I'll have to take a complete break from running... but I don't want to.... I honestly don't know how to deal with that. I feel like this is my fault, I injured myself on purpose not to run the marathon, but I didn't... wow I'm a mess and depress....

Thanks for reading...

Oh, i'm sorry you hurt yourself. I'm not sure what the best course is, but ice, rest and knee exercises? Good luck, you still have a bit of time..

Sorry to hear about the injury. In addition to what yumke suggests have you considered glucosamine? I bought some generic stuff from Zellers and I've found that my knee has felt better lately. You may want to try it. I hope your knee gets better.
