After all my angst about what to do on the cross-trainer, I got to the gym and thought 'well, I'll just give the treadmill a go, and stop if it hurts', and I did the whole run without any probs with knees at all The problems I had were mental!! It was soooooo boring! I found myself just watching every second tick slowly by on the timer. Nothing like running out in the fresh air at all. I'm trying to see it as a means to an end though. The treadmill is obviously kinder to my knees, and I followed the run up with plenty of strength exercises for my legs, so hopefully I'll be back outside soon
