I ran my 7 mile run yesterday…while most of it went ok, my knees really took the brunt of the abuse. I think I’m gonna have to break down and purchase knee braces/wraps. I also iced down my knees afterward, which helped a little. This isn’t very practical for the long run, though. I am really starting to enjoy my long runs, but the pain afterward is much bigger punishment than the run itself. All of that, and I’m only halfway to a half marathon. I still have a long way to go!
