I finished couch to 5k in May and was averaging about 3.5K per run, but I had about a month's break after finishing the programme. Over these past 2 weeks I've started to run again, and managed to hit 4.3K last week.
I've had knee pain for years and it definitely holds me back when I'm running. I get stiff pain in my knees (especially my right one).
Is physio the answer to this? I've started taking cod liver oil recently too, and I've began to up my dosage in the hope of it helping.
I really want to start running faster so I can hit 5k, so I'd be really grateful for any tips on how to get rid of this knee pain!
Well I would advocate a Physio visit.. I cannot believe how much I benefited from my treatment and the regime for getting back on track.
A good Physio, may well help to really find out what is going on!
Thanks for replying I'm definitely going to see a physio now.
I do not regret it at all... and am back on track to my running pace now...
