So true! Better to slow the training down than suffer an injury. In my search for an answer I've narrowed it down to pirifirmis syndrome. I found a vid on YouTube that shows how to relieve it & it worked. Think I'll try to run tomorrow & just walk if it starts flaring again. I'm not trying to win any world records--just be active & I'm certainly feeling better with more energy than before!
I'm having the same problem in my right hip. Thought my yoga session would help but it's still painful & I can hardly bend over. I'm at the 6 week mark & got through the knee issue but now have this problem...wondering if I could dial back on the 10k sequence somehow? Is it possible to go back a couple weeks?
New runner--give way weakness in kneeStarted 10k on 4/26 and LOVE it but having some probs with my left knee which started last week after going down a steep hill. Been icing it & doing hot yoga a couple days a week to stay limber. This "condition" has flared occasionally all my life with overuse but I refuse to quit my new love for running. Can anyone recommend a strap or brace to help with this? I'm 56 yo female carrying about 15-20# extra pounds (which I'm sure doesn't help) Thank you in advance!
