Newbie - Behind the knee injury (poss lT band pain)
Hi all, I've just started training for sprints (last four weeks). I'm 40. I have not had a bike fitting but plan to soon so this could be a contributing factor to my problem. I did a bike ride yesterday 13 miles which is 8 miles more than I have ever done before. I have quite a bit of pain behind both knees at the sides and middle, I've looked on the internet and it could be IT band. I'm not very flexible at all and working on stretch exercises. Has any one experienced this? Could it just be me over pushing myself before I'm ready or the bike or both? Its scared me a bit and put a dampner on my training as I had to back out of a 5mile run today just in case. I've got a 10k run coming up next sunday so hopefully it will get better by then (only ever run 4.5m before). Anyway, any advice or tips would be very welcome.
