Strengthening would be more round your glute med so the band stuff MR says there would help.

Marathon is the June bank holiday weekend.  When I started out on my run yesterday, it did go through my head that my runners were done. Would this be part of the problem??

Depending on the shoe, 400 miles is plenty and then change, keep them for farting about but for benefit change them ..

June should (depending on actual injury) give ya plenty of time, 5 weeks of slow low mileage running while getting over the injury and few long runs beforehand! 
None of us are getting out of here alive, so please stop treating yourself like an after thought. Ea

Was planning on changing shoes this week as would have been on 350/400 miles on them, but yesterday was first time I noticed they felt different.  That's good to hear that (if it's this injury) that I can do some running on it. I was thinking maybe it's a 6 week rest from running, which would be a disaster for the marathon. Cheers men. See what physio says tomorrow night.

Anybody ever done one of the Quest adventure races?

Runners can be a big factor with ITB so definitely worth pursuing that avenue minimum.

I still do wonder whether it is ITB as I have had it(though not to that degree) and it has never caused swelling. Physio better placed to answer that.

Never heard of the quest series...

Even if you have to take time off try to substitute longer stuff etc with cross training. You can substitute a right bit with cycling or cross training. Not the same but would be a massive help in the event of any layoff.

Went to physio,  pinpointed the pain was actually just right of centre on the knee. A case of patellar tendinitis,  physio reckons it's very manageable for me. Ice it every evening, it's taped up now and new pair of shoes got. Out for run in morning to see how it goes, swelling gone, so hopefully goes ok.

Watched the London Marathon this morning, always inspiring hearing all the stories of why some of the runners are running it.

Recently bought the Addidas supernova solutions. Have to say I'm delighted with them. Was going to go back to the Mizuno wave but the lad in the shop suggested these. Great support. Lovely feel and balance to them.

Yes. Good for mixed 4 x 400 in the Europeans.

Do any of you use gels when running long races?  I've been thinking of trying them but don't know anything about it really in terms of quantity to take during the race, at what stages etc.

Wouldn't have been a big user of them when running 10ks runs, but anything over a half marathon I'd have used them occasionally but think my body struggled to break it down, would need to use water with it to stop tummy cramps, but there is definitely benefits in replacing the glucose to your blood and so on.

Was told for distance stuff every 45 minutes..

Daughter doing the Belfast half this year, so she asked me to take her out for a 10k run.. Christ when you aren't pounding the roads for a while you fairly feel it the next day or so! My ankle is aching! Never had that before!

I'd be comfortable over 10km and a half marathon but it's the last 12km or so of a marathon that would have me goosed.  Never know where to be eating the whole way along or to wait to a certain point and then start taking on sugar.  Neurofen on the 20km mark is a guarentee though!

Key bit of advice here. If you are going to run a race and use gels in it use exactly the same gels in training and prepare your body for them. I was reading some stuff on the "elites" recently and they seem to be using them every 6ish miles in a marathon.

If your out running over an hr then they can help. Anything less than that, wouldn't bother. Try the different types during training to see which ones suit. Caffeine ones can be good, but I can't stand them. So gagging on the run ain't a good look.
There's some that you need to take with water and some you dont. So read up.
Few jelly babies can be alternative if, like me, you're not fussed on the jels.
