Hi, I have an annoying issue with my knee because, stupidly, when I first starting having it, instead of taking a few days off running which I'm pretty certain will have prevented it, I carried on running a lot due to having signed up for a 10 mile race. Running doesn't really cause much discomfort if I have warmed up properly. However, when bending down and attempting to do squats an annoying pain probably just below my kneecap in my right knee flares up. I was training through this for about 2-4 weeks before the race without any real issues, just an annoying pain that I could run through that would eventually subside. I did the race without any issues but decided to take the week off running just to let it subside. I did another run yesterday over hills and trails which was fine during although afterwards it was a bit sore. I'm just wondering if anyone has had anything like this before and what did they do to combat it? I'm currently just waiting for a face-to-face medical which I've been told is 1-2 weeks away which Is why i'm quite eager to get rid of it! I'm currently doing a lot of hamstring stretches (as my flexibility is crap) as well as foam rolling the quads and hamstrings. I'm also starting to do leg extensions at the gym but wondering if this is causing more harm than good! Thanks a lot.
