I agree that see a physio would be good but as I'm "between contracts" (not working) at the moment, the private ones are too much. The chance of seeing an NHS one in time (for the marathon) are zero from past experience.
I've looked up exercises for both suggestions and have now done one session for both legs (to keep things even) and for both opinions (runners knee & ITB). It was interesting trying them & as some were a bit tricky I'm sure they won't do any harm.
No residual knee pain before or after now so it's re-assuring that the earlier run has done no apparent harm (fingers X'd). Perhaps I'll do that 1/2 marathon now, that I missed yesterday, see you later... OK, sensible hat on. I'll see if I come across any more exercises to try & then see what tomorrow & beyond brings for easing back in to the running.
I'm not getting much change out of 1.5 hours of non-running exercises done for running now that I've added those in too. I may need to cull some soon... or there won't be time left to run.
Thank you for the suggestions folks.
