My knees were creaky before I started running, and if anything they're a little better since I've done C25K and beyond (I've had a proper gait analysis and my trainers are super-comfy). But after my 10k last week I took the opportunity of a free massage (thanks Bupa!) and as I mentioned the knee issue the guy concentrated on my knees. It was quite painful, but when I walked away I could hardly believe how different it felt - just no pain or 'creakiness' at all (and I'd just run 10k!). It didn't last more than a few hours though, and I'm now keen to recapture that 'just-massaged' feeling as I've realised how much constant pain I'm putting up with.
So has anyone tried supplements such as glucosamine and/or chondroitin? I know you have to take them for a couple of months before you notice a difference, so I thought I'd check what others have found before I splash out!
