I was out on my LSR two weeks ago today 13/3/11 and found I was having throbbing pain in side of my right knee, this irritation started at 6 miles but silly me carried on to 19 miles until pain became so uncomfortable that I could not straighten leg !! Once I finished running the pain stopped.
I did a little research and diagnosed myself as suffering ITBS, anyway seen a physio the two days after injury, and he diagnosed the same he ultrasounded massaged and manipulated leg, pain did not go away. Anyway I have had another 2 physio sessions, foam rolled 3 times a day for the past two weeks and had massages every other day. I have tried a ITBS strap no joy I have had feet analysed and changed my feet to a more suitable trainer but still no joy !!
Please could somebody help, II have been training since November for VLM and have done a 15, 16, 16 and 19 and 19 mile run and do not want to give up anyone got a magic cure for this ?? Cortisone injections or so on ?? What about training until the day ? Should I be replicate what I was running on cross trainer etc .. as this does not hurt knee !! If I do not run until the day will I be able to wing it on the day ??
