Knee problems seem to be an occuring theme here. I have the London Marathon on the 21st April and completed a 20 mile on 24th March. After about 7miles and a rather large hill, my left knee started to ache and there was a dull pain under my knee cap. I continued to complete the run, but had slowed down and a few times i stopped to ease off and when i started again the pain had gone, only to return about 5 mins later. I iced and rested and did 20 mins on the tuesday, however it started to hurt again and haven't run since. I have managed to swim and completed some aqua jog sessions but haven't tried biking. It feels tender on the inside of the knee now, rather than the actuall knee cap itself.
Do you have any advice to make sure that i get to the start line at the end of April.
I have never had any issues with my knee before and have been training and racing in my trainers since November and it doesn't hurt when im walking or on it during the day. Just getting very nervous that i am loosing fitness for the marathon as was on target for 3.15!
