Due to over exertion I've developed a mild knee ligament strain. It kicks in around 10 miles and 5 to 10 miles later I'm feeling uncomfortable; not limping but my knee is tender and I'm knocked off my stride. I know ibuprofen and other pills provide a quick "cure", as will rest - however, I've a 50 mile ultra 7 Sept and am wondering if anyone can suggest an aid to assist me?
Normally it wouldn' bother me either. However, I'm running a 50 mile race for the first time in Sept and am concerned about cramps - last thing I want is pulling up lame. Tight muscles associated with cramps?
Dingle's great - I ran the marathon 2011 and an returning this year for the Ultra.
It is moderately hilly, a killer one about mile 23, but all in all well worth the run. It would great preparation for Dublin and a confidence booster - I did the same double in 2011 and ran a PB in Dublin.
