    No go on the Squats today. Right knee is hurting, and also bottom of foot on right side. Been hurting a little more and more after each squat session, this has been going on a good 6 - 8 weeks, but never stopped me from squatting before. This is the first time, it felt very uncomfortable, and little painful. Like the clicking sound of the knee.

    And when I am in the car for a long period of time, my right knee gets very uncomfortable being in the driving position, I have to move seat all the way back almost, to keep it straight and feels much better.

    Plus on that same leg, bottom of the foot, on right side, hurts, when a ton of pressure on it, especially after squatting the bottom of that foot, feels almost swollen, and hard to stand on 100% perfectly, then it goes away after several hours. But that slight pressure seems to be on the bottom of the foot most of the day, if doing a lot of standing and walking.
