You're doing your favourite sport, and you're totally absorbed in it. Suddenly you hit your knee. You hardly notice it, because you have to and will go further. And you go further, finish what you started and get a good result.
If something's hard to predict, it's long-lasting pain. Mostly pain that has lasted longer than three months. One day you can exert yourself well and it doesn't seem to worsen the pain, the next day you can't do anything.
