Hi Doc Pete, I think it might be the good old runner's knee issue unfortunately. Though I have been doing regular strengthening exercises and using a foam roller which has helped, so fingers crossed it'll be OK in a few weeks.
Chris, if we enter online from now I presume we'll just collect race packs on the day, is that correct?
The inside of my right knee cap feels bruised and tender and gets worse after exercising (running or cycling). I don't have any problems with it whilst walking but do when my leg bends about half way. I can carry on bending my leg and pull it up to my bum and then I don't feel the bruising. It just seems to be when my leg is bent at a certain angle.
During runs and cycling, I feel a bit of discomfort at the beginning but this usually subsides and pretty much goes away. I work in an office and notice the bruising feeling can worsen during the day, but I try and help this by elevating it on a box under my desk throughout the day.
I have a foam and rumble roller that I frequently use but is there anything else that I should try/do to help or is it a case of taking some time off and resting?
I'm running my first marathon in October so I need to as fit as I can by June time to begin my training.
