I put up a thread a little while ago, saying I was training for a half and had sore knees. Since November i've been running in Nike Structure Triax GTX+10's, having been told I overpronated. However, once I get above 20 miles a week, i get some degree of knee pain all the time (especially when my knees are bent). The pain is more noticeable in my right knee than my left.
Having had these for a healthy 6 months, I decided I needed some new ones and that I should get re-diagnosed. But before I did that, I thought i'd do an experiment. I took an old pair of Mizuno Wave Aero's with no support and ran a couple of weeks at a similar mileage in them.
With the longer runs, and the total volume I had some knee pain again, but a different feeling of knee pain. Also, it was predominantly in my left knee, leaving me rather confused.
I've read stuff suggesting that POSE running with flats is good, but im concerned this might kill me. So the question is... do I go and buy a pair of Nike Free's and learn POSE technique? Or do I go and get some more support/motion control shoes?
Could there be anything else that I'm doing wrong with regards to training that is causing my pain?
