Thanks for all the advice, i did alot of foam roller work and had some rest from running. Took plenty of ibuprofen.
Did the half marathon yesterday and ended up doing it in 1hr56mins, i was concious of my knee and wore a it band strap that seemed to stabilize it.
Overall im happy i did it in under 2hrs but im also annoyed as i know my knee held me back a bit.
Thanks for the reply, i have a foam roller so i will be doing alot of stretching this coming week and only have small runs to do between now and next sunday.
I just want to feel relaxed on race day and not be worrying about this happening
Here you go
Thought i would ask on here for advice, i have been training for the Brighton half marathon next Sunday.
I have been following a Lucozade training plan, i had some it band pain last summer but it was minor and went away pretty quickly.
Last night i did a 10 mile run and at about mile 6 the outside of my knee became so painful, i have done 10 miles a few times over the last few weeks with no pain at all.
I am now very worried that this will affect my half marathon and ruin all the hard work and training i have put in, i have a it band strap that i can wear but does anyone else have any advice.
It hurts alot this morning.
