  • Hi guys, I have been suffering for about 5 months with ITBS and lots of lateral knee pain. I have done extensive physio work and concentrated mainly on glute and hip strengthening, shortening my stride length and increasing my cadence. The pain subsides with a few weeks rest but soon returns after a few runs ( on a run every 3 days basis ) and i feel back to square one, this has been months now and i would be over the moon if you could give me any more advice on what i could be doing right or wrong. I am also looking into trying minimalist shoes when i can run again to see if that would help? Many thanks. Neil Barrigan.

  • Great interview, agree with all of it. Very very smart stuff.
