Combination of age, weight and already-dodgy knee and 2 most recent runs =  pes anserine bursitis in my left knee.

Have been RICE ing it for a week now - went to the opera last night and could still barely walk.

Fuck.

I had to take a shit out on my run this morning. First time I've had to do that in months. I had curry for my tea last night. I don't think the two events are unrelated. :o

If I'm out on a long run (anything over 90 minutes) I always take bog roll in a waterproof baggie.

If only. As is normal, I wanted to ease my intestinal discomfort with an aggressive volley of flatulence but realised just in time that would be an unwise course of action!

Can't remember where I discussed my shin splint ailment on this forum, but clearly not in this thread!

Anyway, my daughter who's almost a qualified Chiropractor (6 months to go) has learned to KT Tape & has now taught me as well.
A combination of magnesium gel, KT taping & compression socks has made a dramatic difference to my shin splints, pain went from excruciating to bearable in about a week and I'm pretty much pain free now and still running around 35 miles a week + cycling over 100. So thanks to whoever it was that suggested compression socks, good quality ones are well worth the investment.

Good to hear Jon. I agree about compression socks. I wear the as I was getting calf pulls/tears when running and haven't had any issues since I started wearing them.

Completed my first half marathon in Brighton yesterday, despite the gale force winds, I did it sub 2 hours, so i'm really chuffed and I can honestly say I loved it, already started looking for others to do. Thanks to you guys on here for the tips and advice over the past few months.

Well done Gary on your run. If you are looking for another half local to you, try the Hastings Half on 29th March. Would recommend as it is one of the toughest courses I have ran, with long uphills Queens Drive and then once off the Ridge downhill towards the Old Town, plays havoc with shins. Then once you are on the seafront and you can see Marina Court in the “distance”  approx 2 miles to go. Saying all that a great run well organised and so satisfying when you cross the finish line. Done it about 7 times over the years since first introduced back 1985ish, last one 2005. Take it steady and enjoy. All the best if you are tempted,

Cheers for that, i'll look into it. Want to try and do another couple before the end of the year, maybe even one abroad.
