I am relatively new to running long distances and have committed to running the London Marathon 2003.
A week ago I developed what can only be iliotibial band friction syndrome, caused, I can only deduce, by being overweight and raising my distances too quickly. I have stopped running for a week and my knee feels much better. I am due to see a physio this coming Tuesday but am keen to hear of any other forms of assistance that might get me back on track. E.g.,do Pratt straps really work?
