So got to see physio yesterday and although not bad, have been told to not run for at least a couple of weeks as the puffiness in my right knee is, as I thought, due to my cartilage which has been a problem for me off and on since my teens, but not since I've been running (3.5 years) so I suppose it was always going to happen. She's given me loads of strengthening exercises and wants to see my trainers! She's a runner herself and recommends sorbithane (sp?) insoles for my trainers as at my age (53) I need to cushion my joints as much as possible, especially as I tend to do more road running than trail running (though that changes in the good weather).
Any opinions on these insoles anyone? I understand they're about £20 and I may need to buy another pair of trainers to accommodate them?!!
