So I finally went to the Doctor today, after some folks harassed me to get my knee looked at. I knew they were right and if I wanted to be able to train for the upcoming TRI season I had to get better.
The DOC said I had IT band syndrome and Patellar tendonitis (jumpers knee) in my left knee, and peroneal tendonitis in my right ankle (the problem everyone heard me complaining about months ago)
She gave me two straps to wear above and below my left knee to help with both. The good news is that I just have to stretch, wear the straps, and ice it, and it should be ok, and she said I can go ahead and train and to keep doing the stretches so that it doesn't become a chronic problem.
So we'll see how the straps help with the pain...
