I've got as far as this but don't know whether to continue. I'm fine when I'm running however the next day my knee is really stiff and if I have to turn I get pain in my inside leg by my right knee. It's been like this since I started running and I had issues with the same area when I cycle. I have a horrible feeling it's the meniscus but because it doesn't really cause issues when I run I've ignored it. I haven been to the docs because the general advice seems to be to stop running. I've decided to take a week off, besides its going to be artic this coming week. I run like a tortoise and run on grass and Tarmac. Should I join a gym and use a treadmill or just give up? I feel so proud of myself for getting this far and was surprised I managed the twenty minute run no problems. I don't want to lose the fitness I've gained so far. When I started, running for a minute was a challenge and I'd be gutted to stop now. The plan is to be able to run 5k comfortably then up my speed so by June when I go on holiday I'm fitter if not slimmer as well. I hate dieting I'd rather keep fit. Advice?
