Pain back of knee and at side

Posted: 12/08/2015 at 14:04

Thought i'd send in an update.

8 weeks on and 7 of those no running (just swimming and cycling).

Had physio (acupuncture, massage, strengthening exercise guidance)

Have been strengthening glutes with exercises given for all of the 8 weeks daily.

Started a walk/run program and my knee is feeling tight around the quad just above the knee and just doesn't feel right.

Tearing out now - feel disappointed.

Back to physio tomorrow.

For the past 7 weeks have had no problems/discomfort with walking.

Just wanted to vent my frustrations.

Hi Ameet

Thanks so much for your very informative response.

I have already started the exercises as you have suggested and I noticed in my left side on the first exercise that there was some discomfort which to me says there is something obviously not right in that area. (Left side is the issue). I didn't feel the same with the right side.

So I will continue and once again thank you.

Pain back of knee and at side

Started 2 weeks ago towards the end of a long run. Came on without warning and forced me to stop as it felt uncomfortable. Basically first felt at the back of the leg and it was hard to pinpoint but it caused me to limp the rest of the way and the day after. Been to physio. Told it was Itb. The pain that I was feeling at the side of the knee to touch has subsided but when I tried to run earlier this week I managed a mile before i felt it start coming on again. Felt the pain on bending the knee (as if I was bringing the knee up towards me) and also felt when kicking the covers off me in bed. Have been strengthening glutes and rolling daily. Also been swimming and cycling to get me out the doldrums. Anybody else had this?

Shorts over tights

Is wearing shorts over tights cool or not cool? For both men and women and all seasons. Feedback welcome.

adidas adizero mana - life after?

Posted: 28/03/2015 at 20:16


Have been a faithful adidas adizero mana trainer wearer for the past few years as I haven't wanted to stray away when I know these type suit me.  However, they seem to be thin on the ground these days and no new models on the  horizon.  I am currently looking to replace my trainers.

I've been looking at the adidas adizero boost 2 with interest and wonder if these would be a good transition or if anybody knows if there is a new version of mana coming out?

Thank you

Achilles tenderness but not painful

Posted: 16/02/2015 at 09:06

Hi noticed my right heel felt tight/tender last week and on pinching my Achilles it was tender.  I ran again a further times and it's not got worse but not better.  Also noticed that when flexing the ankle up and down a creaky feeling is there.  What's the general consensus on running with this mild niggle or to rest up until it clears altogether - and if so how long is this likely to typically take?


Thank you

Thank you.  The tights are thick but i just don't like showing my bum even when wearing jeans so that's why i feel more comfortable covering up.

Hi I'm looking for recommendations for long tops to cover my bum whilst running. I'm 5ft 10 and wear men's xl tshirts over my running tights and underneath a jacket but would prefer the top to be even longer. Just feel self conscious and want to feel at ease whilst running. I see men wearing shorts over their running tights and wonder if this would be an option but a skirt would look better. Anyway thought I'd open up the question to the masses and hope I'm not the only one feeling this way.
