How is the lateral knee pain now? Was it runners knee, Illiotibal band syndrome?
what strengthening exercises are you doing? I'm starting to get similar pain.
Hello all can I join the club .....
I ran my secnd marathon last weekend - I took a bit of a risk folowing through on the event as I started to get a slight pain and had noticeable swelling in my left knee during the last few weeks of training - a bit like Richard it was when I was up at the 18 mile long run stage ......My knee ached slightly before starting on Sunday which was obviously a bit of a worry but it was in Amsterdam , a few friends were over with me so I opted to go with it .... fortunately the knee held up very well
My theory is that I simply compressed my training - I was far better at following a schedule on my first marathon but started a few weeks too late on my second and tried to catch up by pushing the pace and piling on the miles ......
I am going to physio tomorrow so will pass on any tips but I suspect the advice will be spread out the training !
