So this is the first time I've really exercised in 5 years (I've got certain medical conditions and have been focusing on bringing my kids into the world). I've managed to get to w2r1. The first time I ran, unnoticed pain in my arches (they're very high) so I went and got fitted for some new trainers, with extra support.
My first run with the new trainers was ok, but unnoticed a pain in my knee. Then on Sunday I got to w2r1, the run itself was ok, my breathing was good and steady, my pace was picking up, but oh my god, both knees were in pain in the inside, to the side of the kneecap. Is this just runners' knee? I think that the new shoes may have changed my gait which would put pressure on different points in my knee. Any advice on what to do? I've been using RICE to help, but I'm still in pain and on ibuprofen.
It's not bad enough to go to a&e, but I really want to get out there for w2r2 asap.
