Cali.happy.life – I ran Long distance for 8 yrs, but stopped in 2016 with patella tendons “on fire” in both knees. Still have discomfort if I run 3 miles and sometimes walking up / down stairs. Any advice? (Link to Slant Board)
MollySquad – My hip flexors say “nope you are done” at 5.5 miles. Should I keep pushing through or is there something I can do?
