So I've always had dodgy knees and part on my aim for c25k was to run 30 mins 3 times a week without sore knees! I have sort of managed that with a combination of slow running, proper running shoes, stride short and as light as possible. However...for the past week or so they have definitely been getting more aggravated. I'm not limping or anything but even when I am lieing down I am aware of their angry grumblings and now can't crouch down without feeling 100 years old. I feel like it is time to take something between a longer rest day and a break. I'd love to know if others have overcome tetchy knees as I don't want to give up running. And in the break- is it best to do nothing at all?
How long do you give knees to recover? - Bridge to 10K
