There seem to be a lot of posts with a similar theme, but none quite sound like my issue…
I’m currently training for a 50k trail run at the end of October and have ongoing issues with tightness in my right leg (quads, hamstring, glutes) which gives me knee soreness (aching & stiffness, nothing too dramatic) on my outer knee above the knee cap. I try to manage this with strength exercises, stretching, foam roller etc. as suggested by a physio a few months back. It has been getting better despite increases in mileage.
However, in the last week this has turned into a different type of pain, same knee on the outside but below the knee cap. It’s more of a shooting pain at seemingly random points but gets worse the further or faster I run… not good in advance of the Ealing Half Marathon on Sunday!
I'll go and see a physio at some stage but does anyone have any ideas on what this sounds like or advice on short term solutions? Taping? Different stretches?
