Re: Knee pain

Just to update: I took ur advice and found a running shop in yellow pages. After a gait analysis (lol I'm sounding professional ) I got a pair of Mizuno wave nirvana for over pronation.
I'm now in week 7 and after 2 weeks in my new running shoes I have no more pain!
YAY!
Thanks for the help x
