She gave me ‘permission’ to run again!
I started running in early March and was doing really well for my age (61). I was planning to do a Half Marathon in September, which I had never run before but always wanted to. As part of my training I started doing the Park Run, but after my second one I developed knee pain that did not settle in few days. I went to the GP who told me to stop running and come back in one month. I was not happy. I had sharp pains in both knees and having googled my symptoms I wondered whether it could be a cartilage problem.
