Ouch! I did that in AIT with the Army; no bueno. Do what you have to do to heal, man, regardless of anything else--you only get one body per lifetime.

The second day, was very similar to the first, except there was a good deal of wall sits. During another 2-3 mile cross country run (couldn't miss a puddle of course!) I felt sharp pain in both my knees. I completed the run, and notified my instructor.

Doctor says over use is most likely the culprit, with possible tearing of some muscles around the knee. I can't walk around very well at all right now without pain.

The academy has of course, been less then sympathetic, and I'm getting a great deal of grief over being hurt. I have no idea whats going to happen with me.

Wish me luck, this is a very trying time for me.

Ice elevation and nsaids for first day, alternate ice and heat after that. Ice after workouts to reduce swelling, check with sorts medicine specialist, talk with physical therapist to get more ideas.

If it's not torn stuff, you may be able to tough it out. But make sure it isn't something serious, or something partially torn that you could tear all the way if you're not careful. See if they'll let you wear brace of some sort for extra support.

Good luck, hang in there if you can, don't be afraid to back out and come back after you heal from a minor injury rather than try to stick it out and cause an injury you can't come back from...
