I run about 60-70km a week at the gym, to stay fit really and because I love to run of course, and once a week (beginning of week) I make sure I run a half marathon distance. Height wise I'm 6ft 4, slim build.
I don't run anything earth shattering for the half, but stay under 1hr 30mins.
The problem is, fitness-wise I'm fine, I dont feel like I'm pushing myself anymore, but the pain in my knees is really annoying, they just feel like I'm doing too much and by the time I've run 22km on a Monday night my knees hurt for the rest of the week. (I only have Sundays off from running.)
I dont feel as though I could push myself anymore doing the half distance unless I stopped the distances I run during the rest of the week and rested, then I guess my knees wouldnt ache so much.
Does anyone have any advice? Am I doing maybe a bit too much for my knees weekly? My running technique is good, fitness is good, god only knows how you full marathon runners cope
