I have been running for around 10 years or so, now 42, and in the last year following a lot of constant pain in my knees I was diagnosed by a consultant at the Bristol Sports Injury Clinic with worn meniscus in both knees. They suggested that my running days were over and that I should take up a new method of keeping fit.
In the last 6 months I have stopped running totally and have been going to the gym throwing around a few weights and doing a bit of light work on the cross trainer. Not only is this tedious, boring and quite frankly depressing the blinking knee pain is still there! Grrrr.
Are there any runners out there that have managed this condition and continued some form of running? I would be happy just going out once a week for a 10km Sunday morning plod, but I really can't do with any more pain. Any thoughts or comments are most welcome.
