    I haven't been to the docs as it's not a constant pain, it only occurs when I exercise; specifically when I do running, skipping and squats :( :cry:. If I go to the docs he'll say I need to lose weight :rolleyes:.

    I do about 3 miles run/walk - should I aim for that distance on the cross trainer?

    Also what are the rehabilitation the exercises that I should do to strengthen my knees?

    I go swimming every Sunday ... and do about 20-30 lengths.

    My run is in July ....

    Thanks - CC. :)

  3. Okay so from what you've said I'm guessing its just from impact you get the pain. If you try and do exercise which involves less impact that would help alot.

    3 miles/ run/walk -> yes aim for this or higher on the cross-trainer, you'll find it shouldn't hurt your knee like the treadmill does.
    I've put a link on for good rehabilitation exericses, concentrate alot on step ups as these are very good.
    Knee Rehabilitation Exercises (any questions on that just ask me :) ) Swimming is also a good rehabilitation exercise so it's good you're already doing that.

    Good luck, any more questions feel free to ask. Nikki.

    I'm looking to start training again now that I'm back from holiday. I've this pain in my right foot (on the top not the sole), it seems to be easing a lot now, but I did do an awful lot of walking in New York.

    Thinking of just doing 5km on the X trainer 3 times per week until I lose a few pounds and I'm fitter and the pain is completely gone. Will do 1000 metres on the rowing machine mix it up a little.

    What do you think?
  6. Hey CC,
    hope you had a good holiday.
    Yeah that all sounds totally fine, it shouldn't affect your injury either which is good.
    Maybe try and go a further distance each week, say go to 6km every session on the cross trainer. (on the 2nd week of training)

    Hope it goes well,
