the idea of a hat measuring calorie consumption sounds so bizzare!

Running with oestoarthritis in kness

Posted: 22/05/2016 at 10:21

Recently after a weekend of gardening (lot's of kneeling) my right knee swelled up and was very painful.

A visit to the Doctors and the hospital for X-rays reveals I have osteoarthritis in my knee (probably as a result of a motorbike accident trauma to my knee when I was 17 - I'm 44 now).

The Doctor suggested I took up lower impact sports, particularly as I'm a well-built guy.

Reading up on the internet - as usual there is a mixed bag of opinions - some saying to stop, some saying continue and some saying adapt style, surfaces etc. and then continue.

I'm also due to see a physio who hopefully can give me a good professional opinion.

Has anyone on here been diagnosed with OA and if so what did you do?

or try vibram five fingers? They would roll / squash up small in hand luggage and also be a good holiday shoe for the beach or by the pool?

Well guys after a week my knee was still very swollen and painful so the Doctor sent me to the hospital for X Rays. It turns out I've got oesteo-arthritis in my knees so the doctor has sent me for physio and recommended no running at the moment.

The plan is physio, lots of walking and cycling, lose weight, build strength in knees and then hopefully get back running if all is ok.

Hi guys. I'm currently sidelined with bad knees! It followed a full day of gardening on Saturday. I think all the kneeling has caused my knees to swell and hurt! Hopefully back to it tomorrow - especially as the weather is improving. 

glad you are on the mend Boff.

I've worked on construction projects at NLW - what a great place. 

Not sure I'm a 65 min WP - that's my only race benchmark. Don't reckon I'll be quite that pace so I better head for 75!

yes, we definitely had snow in Llanelli WP. Hope your tooth is better soon. 

Back to the 5am runs in the morning.

The Aberystwyth 10k is usually the first week of December Boff. 

I've spent a lot of time in the area and have a great  fondness for it.
