What's up with it? I only ask because mine gets bad off and on since having Alex and seems strongly linked to my SI joint (and also hormones - it's worse at certain times of the month). Weirdly omega 3 supplements have helped a lot over the past year or so.

Hmmm it's some sort of patellar femoral pain that I have had on an off for years (long before Tessa). But it's odd that it hurts now when my running load is so low compared to what it used to be. It's generally linked to more kms, I have had so many different physios etc look at it over the years... There's nothing obviously wrong, I have good running form, it tracks relatively well (but maybe just not quite perfect enough tracking for the loads I put on it).
I am thinking of paying a personal trainer this time, to yell at me to do the right exercises...

well interestingly mine was bad back when I was an 'elite' too (started at Uni when I trained more) but had lots of physio and did my exercises back in those days which seemed to hold it at bay...

Exercises don't seem to corelate enough for me to be motivated to do them. Was at least trying to do leg extensions if I went to the gym... since I believe the quad on that side is weaker. It could be worse now due to any residual hip / si laxity.

good luck with it, if I stop and crunch my back it often eases it, mine was particularly bad two years ago and is getting better...

What type of back crunching do you mean? Like twist so it clicks?
