I don't believe runners make a whole load of difference to knee trouble for me. I bought the most expensive Mizunos and made no difference,in fact they may well have exacerbated the problem because they are so comfortable and fancy you feel like running further! . Too much too soon is what fucks my knees up. Slow and steady..thats how I need to roll. Auld lad stryle

Roll being the operative word at the minute cos I'm all fat again

I was running 50k a week, one week I did 60 and my knee has been wrecked ever since. Physio says it's not permanent and diagnosed a sprained knee. Taking a *long* time to bring it back, but it's slowly getting there.

Anyway, MORAL is don't over do it, stretch after like a mo-fo (definitely worth getting a foam roller), and consider doing sit down squats etc on non running days to build up the muscles around the knee,

My problem is I’ve never done any exercise. Ever. Basically I’ve no lung capacity, so can’t run for very long before I have to stop anyway, then wait a couple of minutes, then start again. I’m not exactly breaking any distance records, like. The knee thing is just the ridiculous icing on top.
