Intresting. Guess I'll stop taking mine from now on, shame I only take them because I hate fish.

Thanks that helps a lot.

I used it this morning for like a minute or two and assumed that was maybe to long!

Thanks for the replies. I picked up a foam roller yesterday. Is there a limit to how long or much I should use it per day?

I started to do some exercises and scratches last night, felt a lot less pain this morning, normally I wake up and it's really stiff/sore getting out of bed.

Thanks, just booked an appointment with a physiotherapist in a couple of days. I'll just rest, ice, compress and elevate until then. Hopefully it isn't long term!

Guess I wait for what the physiotherapist tells me and if I can train my legs another way that will build my endurance.

Hi there!

I've recently been training for the Royal Parks Half Marathon. ( About 3/4 weeks ) Sunday 30th June the left side of my left knee started to hurt, I've been running Sun,Tues,Wed,Fri... Before running though I was very lazy, I would try to avoid cardio at all costs.
On Sunday I done my biggest run to date! Just over 4 miles, knowing my knee hurts I assumed I could just run through it. All Sunday after the run and yesterday it was very tender and painful, I had to drag myself up and down stairs using the banister. Today I woke up and it didn't feel too sore so I decided to go out for my run, after about 1 minute of running it was in a lot of pain, I had to cut my run short and come home.

I believe it's ITBS, what's the best course of action? As I don't really want to lose time training.
I've done zero treadmill work, I do all my running outside on footpaths. Also my trainers are new Brooks Ravenna 4 Men's from Sweatshop.

Any help that can minimize my downtime would be greatly appreciated.
