I have been training for 9 months for my first ever ultra marathon, which is on 23rd August. I have no history of knee trouble, but I have had to abort the last 4 runs after a handful of miles, due to a painful knee 'ache', based to the outside of the knee and radiating up and down too.
My sports massage therapist thinks it's tight ITB and has done soft tissue massage, plus some stretches and strengthening exercises; also k-taping and ice. The problem is, it's not getting better. The only thing I haven't given it is rest of over a week, for obvious reasons (3.5 weeks to go).
Please can you advise? Desperate to do this run.
