Hi all. Advice needed.
I have been having mild knee pain for the last few runs so I bought some pukka running shoes after having my gait analysed.
The shoes are really comfortable to run in but the knee pain hasn't gone away. In fact, I completed W6R1 last night and had to put an ice pack on my knee after I finished. Perhaps I've not recovered properly from the W5R3 twenty minute run.
I have carried on with the program as I thought the knee trouble was due to me being a new runner (and quite heavy). I know that tired old muscles must become stronger and so some pain is inevitable during the initial stages. Does anyone know if the pain will go away if I keep running or should I give it a rest for a couple of days to see if it gets better.
I refuse to give up though. I'm enjoying the running too much
