On Friday I headed back to the running store I frequent. As you may recall, I have been experiencing some knee pain over the past few weeks which just happens to be about the same time I purchased my Mizuno Wave Riders. So here is the thing…. I can run 36 miles of trails in my trail shoes and have no knee pain. Put me on the road and at about 2 miles the burning sets in. It feels like the front of my knee caps are on fire and just burns so bad. Well the store was awesome and gave me another pair of shoes to test out. Saturday afternoon I headed out for a 7 miler and just as I feared the pain was back. The further I run the worse the pain got. At 6 miles I stopped and hit the YMCA for some resistance training.
So what could this be?? I will try one more run today in the new Nike’s but if I feel the pain again I will have to head back to the running store for more help. Maybe I should run the roads with my trail shoes. Would that be bad??
