During the tail end of a 10k run on Sunday I started to get a pain on the outside of my left knee but as it was near the end, I carried on. It got better during the week and so I went out again last night. After a while I was getting a dull ache but then around 6k I had to walk. About 500 meters later I managed to run for about 5 meters, walked again for about 10, run for about 50 meters and then just gave up. I was 3k from home so just stopped my watch and walked home in the rain .
I can also feel it when straighting my leg and also when going up stairs. I did put a frozen packet of chips (all I had) on it last night.
I've been Googling it, but could probably self diagnose myself with several different things. Therefore are there any suggestions here? Would it be worth going to see a physio?
Also, I am going to make sure I rest it because I have a place in Berlin and I would much rather rest it now, than rsik it.
