What to Do If Your Knees Do Hurt on the Run + Favorite Easy Day Shoes | DOR Podcast #104

We know from the research that running isn't bad for our knees, but that doesn't mean we won't pick up knee injuries every once in a while. Patellar Tendinopathy is one of the most common ailments for runners. The knee is critical in the gait cycle, so is easily effected. Nate, Matt, and DJ discuss chronic tendon pain in the knee: its anatomy, symptoms, and risk factors. They give you tips for rehabbing the patellar tendon so you can get back to running consistently. Finally, of course, they cover what types of shoes can influence the tendon.

This Week's Sponsor: Running Warehouse!

With Fall coming up, that mean's two things: it's marathon racing season! And well - it's Fall. This week's sponsor is Running Warehouse, and they've got some really great apparel in to get you ready for anything, whether it's raceday or cool weather running.

We are huge fans of rabbit running gear. We talk about it all the time in our chats about how soft and comfortable it is. For Chicago marathon fans, you should absolutely check out their fun Chicago Collection. The colors look awesome with the red, light blue and white and our team are superfans of their singlets. If you are looking for Fall gear, Rabbit's ez long sleeve is one of absolute favorites. We reviewed it two winter seasons ago and are still using it to this day because of how well they've held up and soft they remain.

You can also find tons of great new releases including the Asics Magic Speed, Kayano 29 which we just reviewed, and the Fresh Foam More v4 which we are reviewing now and have enjoyed. Head over to runningwarehouse.com today to shop.
