Some of you may be seeing this again, I just posted it in the Road Runners, but I'm trying to find a quick answer, so I'm posting it in here too:
I've been running for over a year now. I typically run 5+ miles 2-3 times during the week and 1 long run 10+ miles on the weekend.
I got new shoes for christmas, they are great and I've worn them consistently and I have never had a problem.
Last weekend after I got back from my long run I felt fine, I stretched, and I thought I was good to go. The next day I had pain in my left knee, it feels like it could be either towards the bottom of the kneecap, or under the kneecap (it's kind of hard to figure out where exactly pain is coming from).
I don't think a doctor could actually do anything for me, I'm not going to pay for x-rays or anything like that.
So I've rested and I'm not pushing it. I have a 10 mile race coming up next weekend. Should I try out a brace? Would that help?
The knee pain i not extreme, but it is just an uncomfortable ache. Any help would be appreciated.
