As a government employee I love a good acronym. Most of the time. The acronym I recently learned after experiencing knee pain is RICE, or Rest Ice Compression and Elevation.
It suggests that always running on the same side of the road (which I do) changes your gate as paved roads generally have a crown to promote better drainage during rainy seasons. Face palm! Looks like I should switch up my route.
The article then explains how to rehab yourself when experiencing this kind of ailment (like using the RICE method) and even proposes some presentational measures.
Just three more days until I attempt to run again. Three long days.
