    Sorrly, only just seen this - not been following anything online I can link to - I saw a physio who gave me some exercises, but if you google exercises for strengthening glutes, and stretching quads its basically all of those.

    Lots of lunges too.

    First run in over a month with no knee pain. Looks like the stretching and strengthening exercises are working. ✌️✌️

    I did actually see Rich a few years back when I had a bike fit, he was great.

    Didn't even think of him for a running injury. I'll book another appointment with the physio, and see what she says. I may just be impatient and its gonna take some time to sort out

    Yeah they never really mentioned a follow up visit, but as it was private I can go whenever I want.

    Just need to be able to afford it!

    Front, under the kneecap, and occasionally on the side.

    I suspect the occasional side knee pain is ITB as I have suffered from that in the past so have been stretching and foam rolling as much as I can.

    The under kneecap pain is what's getting me down, it mostly okay day to day but descending stairs and squatting makes it hurt loads, and then if I run it starts hurting almost straight away, just an ache that over the miles builds up to be pretty painful.

    Physio said there was nothing wrong with the joint of my knee, she suspects that it's a combination of weak muscles around the knee, and tight quads.

    So I have strengthening exercises and stretches that are supposed to help but it's been a month with no improvement.

    I haven't been for a single run since the Manchester Half Marathon. Knee pain that does not seem to be going away.

    Physio gave me some exercises to do which I've been doing most evenings but I've not see any improvement yet.

    Not sure what else to do, also concerned that if I ever do manage to shift it that it will return once I start running again.

    Yeah, that was the first thing I did when the pain started, fairly certain my running style is okay - although I do overpronate so have trainers with additional support, but can't say I have noticed a difference.

    I'm suffering with patella tendinitis at the moment too, really depressing as I can't run at all currently. Physio has given me various squat exercises and stretches etc I need to do, as well as supplements to take, but no improvement yet.

    I haven't ran for 10 days now. Knees are still sore after the Half Marathon.

    Went to see a physio a few days ago and got some acupuncture, a massage, and some stretches and exercises to do.

    Frustrating.
