I don't know what I did to my knee during the 5k last week. I thought it was fine. After all, I was able to finish the race, and it felt fine the next day. Or perhaps I should say it felt fine until I tried to run on Monday.
So I've been taking it easy all week - walking and using the elliptical machine at the gym instead of running. My knee is feeling much better, so I'm going to attempt a short run tonight after work and see what happens. I'm keeping my fingers crossed and hoping for the best.
The weather has been beautiful and I'm itching to get back to running outside, having spent the last week working out inside at the gym. Wish me luck!
