Zingers DO NOT Help Knee Pain!

Experiencing the full-blown affects of a chocolate zinger does not alleviate any kind of knee pain. You can ice your knee while eating a Zinger, knees still hurt. Try adding in some ibuprofen prior to eating the Zingers while icing down the knees, still no relief. Any questions regarding this mini research study can be directed in the comments section below.

I'm on a Zinger kick for some reason and my knees are hurting me for some reason. A couple months ago I got into a local bootcamp and was also doing some Fusion (kickboxing). The workouts were awesome, but heck on my knees. After about 3 weeks I stopped going. Since then, my running hasn't been the same. I can go knock out some shorter runs and some days are better than others, but today was not one of those days.

Currently, I have arthritis in my right knee, and have experienced some pain due to IT Band Sydrome and Patella Femoral pain. Adding cycling to my exercise routine has helped strengthen my legs and minimize the ickiness I was feeling in my knee. I was having fun with my runs and knocking out some good times.

Now I have extreme pain in my left knee. I cut a 12 mile run today to 6 because I didn't want to make the problem any worse. So, this week, I'm headed to see an orthopedic. Yeah! So we'll see what they say. I want this to be over cause I want to run! run! run!

Have a great week blogger peeps! and go get yourself a Zinger.

Hope your knee gets better soon but what excuse will you have then for gorging on zingers?
Seriously, heal fast. I am sidelined from running now and it is not fun at all. I don't think zingers would help Achilles tendon either. :(

crap, and I thought Zingers were the miracle drug! Isn't that what U2 was singing about on their previous album? :-)

Hope your knees feel better, and you get some good results from your doctor's visit!!

Wow, I haven't seen a zinger in years. My grandma used to have them and I would regularly raid her cupboard. Best of luck getting the knee back to normal. Injuries suck!
