Thats great Khanivore - many congrats - for me, the Patt strap arrived and it works to an extent - ended up doing 8 miles very slowly and the knee seems to feel all the better for it - so will continue taking things easy and doing the exercises from the link on pg 1 and hit the training proper in the new year - good luck all!
Ive taken the plunge and ordered a Patt strap - thanks green eyes - ill try anything at the moment. Still continuing with the resistance band - strength and stretching exercises. If anything by the end of it ill have the most wonderfully toned legs in all of Sussex - irrespective of whether or not they work.....
Yes does sound familiar, although sounds like mine is slightly higher up - you know in that hollowy bit that you can put your finger into. Would be very interested to hear what a professional has to say about it... and what they do i.e. - manipulate it or just give you a bunch of exercises to do - or both....?
Good luck. Ivery tentatively took a few running steps this morning with no pain (been doing the exercises for about 2 wks now) so i can feel they're definitely helping. I'm pretty sure that the answer is to not jump back into things too quickly - even if feeling ok. My feet are very itchy and i really want to get back out there as im not a great fan of X training - and dont have gym membership or anything, so struggling to remain patient - especailly with the half in Feb looming
Anyways keep us posted and let us know if you find anything else of use.
