I have self diagnosed runner's knee on my right hand side (from the injuries section and the postings on the matter) and am going to bring it up at my bi-annual MOT with BUPA later this week.
I have something of a dilemma.. I would appreciate your views
First, one of the reasons I am suffering might be that my trainers have passed their best before mileage. so I will definitely be buying some new - but I am due to run the GNR on sunday - and therein lies the second half of the dilemma. I have always thought it daft to run that far in new shoes (oooh!).
So, a) do i run at all - can one "recover" from runners knee? and b)If I do run, do I carry on with the shoes I have or invest in some new ones which may protect my knee in the long run?
The GNR is important to me as it is the one chance a year I get to run an event with my mum. Its also the last event of my year before hibernating and thinking about next years FLM/doing a tri.
Thanks in advance & sorry for rambling...
