I'm currently training for Beachy, and have been having a few problems with my knees - mainly the left one. I did a 17 mile LSR on Saturday and both my knees started feeling a little twingey about halfway round. I continued and they were a bit achey on and off for the remainder of the run - but nothing out of the ordinary.
By the time I got home, they felt really tight, stiff and sore - and almost like my kneecap wanted to move downwards and say hello to my shin. I did the usual ice bath thing, but my left knee still felt hot, and I had some fluid on it, on the inner side slightly below my kneecap. i RICEd it, it hurt like hell for the rest of the day but was absolutely fine the following day. This has happened once before on an LSR, so I changed from my Roclites back to Nimbus to give myself a bit more cushioning.
This is the first marathon I've trained for, I run on reasonably hilly/undulating ground - is this normal? Should I be worried? And considering it's perfectly fine the next day, am I doing myself any damage?
