Hi all

My knees have been tender for about 2 weeks now (since half marathon). Walking and swimming is fine, so I don't think its anything too serous at all. However, walking up stairs they are very tender, and it feels like the patella on each knee is slightly swollen. I'm icing them but I'm feeling extremely impatient and I'm eager to get back out training. I know that tender knees are a common problem. In other people experinces, how long give or take will it take for them to clear up?

Have you thought about taking Ibruprofen to reduce the inflammation? 400mg 3 x daily should help with the pain. Are they grinding? If so, maybe it's worth a trip to see the GP as you may have reduced synovial fluid around your patella.

Good luck
