Hopefully I can speed the healing process by applying the R.I.C.E technique because there is a 10k I would like to run on Thanksgiving day and beat my PR.
Rest the knee. As much as possible, try to avoid putting weight on your knee.
Ice your knee to reduce pain and swelling. Do it for 20-30 minutes every 3-4 hours for 2-3 days, or until the pain is gone.
Compress your knee. Use an elastic bandage, straps, or sleeves to give your knee extra support.
Elevate your knee on a pillow when you're sitting or lying down.
