I have a niggle in one knee. well not a niggle an ache, a tightness. It doesn't hurt when I run or when I don't - i can just feel it when i get up from a chair. Now, sitting here typing, if I flex my leg i can feel it.
I spoke to a friend who is an experienced runner who said I had runners knee! That even with the slow build up of c25k my knee has taken the strain because my glutes etc... weren't strong enough to help. I have started squats and exercises on my rest days to build these up.
Today's run felt much better in fact my fastest yet.
So I suppose my question is - do I keep running through this ache and work on my glutes and core or should i rest from running and concentrate on strength?
I don't want to stop running but also I don't want to do damage that would put me on the IC for longer than if i rested now.
