Please Tell Me It’s a Fluke

Usually at the gym I warm up on the treadmill. Jump on, run for a mile or two, then head over to hit the weights.

Tonight I’m on the treadmill, jogging along, when my knee starts hurting. Then I started getting a bit winded.

I glanced down at the display. I’d only been running for 5 minutes. Less than half a mile.

I sure hope this is a one day fluke, or I’m getting older at a much faster pace than I was expecting…



  1. I’m sure it’s just a fluke but age does tend to creep up on you and yell BOO when you least expect it.

  2. It is totally a fluke, its the annual knee complaint for November. Once a year. That’s all. You’re fine. 🙂

  3. Most definitely a fluke! Like anything we have good days and bad days! Chalk Monday night up to a bad day. 🙂

  4. Probably a fluke. But if you retry running and the pain doesn’t disappear, it’s no good news.

  5. Oh you were just havin’ an “off” day… age creeps up a lot slower than that! Your body wanted an early few days’ start to the big fat lazy holiday. Have a Happy Thanksgiving, Geekhiker!

  6. Let’s hope it isn’t the flu!

  7. So the knees aren’t supposed to hurt? Who knew! In the words of Indiana Jones “It’s not the age, it’s the miles”

  8. I’m going to go against the grain and say that you’ve accidentally stepped into a time machine and aged your body and this in fact, IS NOT A FLUKE. You will now find that you like eating dinner at 4pm, and that polyester is the best material to have against your skin. You are now old beyond your years. I’m sorry I had to be the one to tell you all of this.

  9. Homer-Dog – Thanks for the warning.

    ruby – Whew! Glad to know this will only happen once a year!

    *kb* – Given your much more extensive experience, I’ll trust you on this one!

    Gany – Yeah, recurring pain is never a good sign, must keep my eye out…

    charlotte – Ah, the body decided to start the holiday early. I like that idea.

    Aaron – Well, that’s a cheery thought. 😉

    dobegil – Perfect movie quote!

    brandy – LOL – Thanks for the best laugh I’ve had all week! 😀
