I'm hoping thati can get some advice, and have been pondering whether to start a thread or not!! here goes!
I've been running on and off for about 8 months, completed the GNR which was my first event, and have now started to fall in love with running, to the extent i needed a new goal so entered the brighton marathon, next year as something to do wth turning 30!
However, my left knee, has been swelling, and i've been losing a lot of range of motion in it, so thought it was just knees playing up like they have done for 13years! Anyway went to the doctors this week, as they have been so painful, and was told that i need to stop running, and stay fit another way, and give up the marathon dream! this did not go down well!
Anyway please could you give me you thoughts, as i'm thinking of taking December off of running, and then building up again next year, albeit it will be slower than i built up this year, and hope that my knees improve. What do you think? The thought of not running is horrible, as it's something i do for me, and as much as i sometimes don't want to go at all, when i've been i'm on such a high!
your thoughts would be great
