I started to running recently with a mixture of couch to 5k and parkruns.
The local parkrun I do is all across grass so I bought myself a pair of trail shoes which whilst less comfortable then my other running shoes certainly give better traction and are more enjoyable overall all to complete the course in.
However on the first time of running in them, I started to feel some tenderness on the inside of my left knee. I didn't think much of it tbh.
On my next road run in my other shoes my knee became painful in the same place. I had never had this pain in these shoes before.
This Saturday before Parkrun the pain had all but gone so I thought it wouldn't be a problem. However I was in pain all the way round. I got home as some as possible and practiced RICE, and it was then I discovered that it was sore to touch.
I should mention that my hamstring are very tight, and my knees lock back. The pain is most evident when my knee is locked back and also when I put weight on that leg.
Any suggestions? I obviously want to be able to run again as soon as possible, but don't wat to risk injuring myself further.
Could it be a problem with the new trail shoes? Not stretching enough?
