Well it’s been a couple of weeks since I was reluctantly persuaded to have a GA to see if it would help my knee problem.
I say “reluctant” because I thought it was possibly just a rip off way to make you buy new (and more expensive) shoes.
But I have to admit that my persistent acute knee problem, that started at around week 7, has disappeared without a trace.
I’ve only done 2 runs (6km and 5km) since I had the GA but I can tell it’s very different.
I still have achy knees and hips afterwards for a day but it’s an even, all over pain that’s not in one specific place and so I’m guessing that’s just because I’m new to running and I’m getting on a bit. I’m expecting the aches to ease a bit one day!
Yes, I did have to part with £110 for my new shoes (incidentally, one and a half sizes bigger!) but as some of you said to me on here, it’s a good place to start if you want to keep on running.
Which I do.
Thanks folks. 😊
