So I went to see a Physio yesterday, cos i've got patellar maltracking. she did lots of indescribably painful things to my ITB, and looked at my alignment etc. i've got slightly odd legs, a bit of a muscle imbalance, but nothing, she said, that couldn't be fixed with a foam roller and some comedy, "lie half off the bed and lift this leg up behind the other one, and then put a towel round your ankle, and then tie your arms in a bow" exercises.
THEN she said I shouldn't be trying to run further than a half marathon, and really I ought to only be doing a max of 10k because "some people just aren't built for running"
now, Paula R, I ain't, and the knee thing is annoying, but kind of assumed that if I did all the exercises, didn't go mental on the mileage and lost a few pounds, I might one day be able to do a marathon. Just a "get you round" sort of programme. But is she right, should I not even try? cos that's kind of depressing
