Hi all, new to the forum.
I got into running a year or so ago, after snapping my ACL in my left knee playing football and subsequently deciding not to have a reconstruction meant I struggle with things like football/rugby etc now.
Running was fine on my knee, but I was struggling for a while with a foot problem which was suspected to be to do with my cuboid when running for much more than an hour, so after consultation with a physio and a running shop, was blamed on me overpronating and having flat arches. I was recommended supportive running shoes (Asics Kayano 18 or Adidas Supernova Sequence) and some off the shelf arch supports until I could get in to see a podiatrist.
Anyhoo, I eventually got to see a podiatrist who said that the cause of the pronation was misdiagnosed and I actually needed some custom orthotics and recommended that I go to a less supportive shoe (He reccommended Saucony Kinvara 3s).
I have been trying to get on with the custom orthotics and Kinvaras for a few weeks now and can't seem to run more than about 4 miles without getting quite a bit of pain in my outer right knee pretty much immediately after stopping my run. Could this be caused by the orthotics/shoes and is this something that is likely to subside as I adjust to the shoes?
I'm wondering if it is ITBS and this is something I have not had problems with before. Before the new shoes/inserts I was running 3-4 times a week between 6-11 miles with no problems from the "temporary fix" given by my physio.
