But can't tell you this week's lottery numbers!
Jan 11th, 2014
Tom emailed: I have been training for the Paris Marathon which is less than 2 weeks away now. I’ve been lucky enough not to have any aches and pains until a week and a half ago, when I started getting pain on the outer side of my right knee during a fairly long run. I carried on for a bit but then decided to stop as it was getting quite painful. So I’ve rested it for a week then I ran 17 miles at the weekend which I ran quite slowly as it was mildly painful.
With less than 2 weeks to go I was planning a couple more runs but mainly resting my knee before the marathon. I’m a bit concerned it may be a problem on the day. Is there anything I could do before or during the Marathon that might help?
The Guru Responded:
Sounds like an ITB friction issue where it attaches to your knee. It’s one of the common ailments this time of year.
Don’t give up though as your starting your taper and don’t need to increase your mileage.
I’d suggest lots of foam rolling on your ITB, stretching out the front of your hip and ankle joint. If you can recruit and feel your gluts on a single knee squat and be PAIN FREE then chuck a few of these into the mix during the coming days. Ice etc etc all pretty good stuff.
Don’t over stride in Paris – and bonne chance.
