Sara Jones from (rookie on the run)inspired this post. She had been complaining of knee pain on her blog-- and I recommended she take a supplement that I have found to be very successful.
I've had pains since I began running months ago. Not severe pain- but my joints, legs, and knees have all given me some discomfort.
I was discussing my recent knee pain with a co-worker who recommended Glucosamine 750-Chondroitin 600 supplements, sold at GNC.
I took her advice. I'll tell you-- there was not immediate relief but after several days I am happy to report nearly all of my pain is gone. This stuff is great! There are studies out there to back up the success.. In fact, Runner's World has done numerous articles on the supplements. Many people with arthritis take these daily to strengthen joints-- particularly in the knees. I, do not have arthritis-- and hope by taking these, I won't end up with the condition.
Like anything, I am sure, results vary. Many times it depends on how your body reacts to this.
Also-- any tips on preparing for my big half next Sunday-- much appreciated.
Have a great day!
