I have one of these, that was very good to start with, but now after about 6 months it does not pick up that I am walking neither running, same as you. I have tried everything to get it to resync etc but nothing.
I know that there are lots of threads about knee pain, but i have a little niggle i would like some advise on please
My left knee under the knee cap and around the outside is painful when i start running, and has been for about 2-3 months, this starts to ease off after 4-5 miles but it is still there niggling away, I am wondering whether this is because i am over compensating from the Mortons Neuroma i have on my right foot for which I moulds in my trainers, or whether this is from my running gait as i run on the outside of my foot more so on the left than the right.
Outside of running, both my knees are sore when i go down any stairs, luckily i live in a flat!!
Also is there any kind or support bandage i can wear to ease the pain whilst running?
I need to lose a stone in weight, which I know I can do, but I am bored of eating the same things all the time which I think is making it harder and makes me want to eat yummy things like crisps and chocolate.
Breakfast is ok I either have toast with peanut butter or porridge/branflakes.
Lunch is normally a wholemeal pitta filled with either tuna or eggs and dinner something like fish or quorn chicken with veggies
Its my Lunches and dinners that I need inspiration for……….
I current run with my local club:
5-6 miles on a Monday
6-9 miles on a Wednesday
Track work on a Thursday
I then go out on a Saturday on my own and can do anything from 5-8 miles.
So I need food that will make me feel full and get me through my runs.
I have been to the doctors as it was very painful at the end of last week, he has diagnosed Mortons Neuroma, he has given me anti-inflammatory tablets for a month and has said to go back if no better and he will send me to a podiatrist for specialist pads for my trainers.
I will try the pads as above and i am going to invest in some new trainers and soft socks.
