    Hi guys, happy new and stuff.

    Do you have any advice on keeping the knee warm whilst jogging? I wear tights which keep me warm enough but with my rheumatism I have to keep my knee/joints super warm for extra blood flow. After a blank December, I've started to run again, I did 5k on the 2nd to test the water and then a 7 k just now. And my right knee is aching so much bending takes a hell of an effort.

    Someone recommended I cycle for a while to strengthen my knee, which is what I did throughout the month of December, it hasn't worked though.

    Any help much appreciated.
    Thanks

    Thanks, I'll look into this.

    Just a quick question, I wear tights to run so, wearing Lycra on top of Lycra is kind of stupid.
    Are the carbon ones effective for blood flow or is it more a support thing? Would this or something similar be a good purchase?

    Will probably do fine. I am sure you can find something cheaper in a local pharmacy. It doesn't need to be amazing and neoprene over lyrcra is actually a reasonably good idea. The tights are unlikely to give the slight compression/warmth you need/want over your knees. Two layers will perform better than one.

    They can be found in pharmacies? :shock: I'll have a look tomorrow. Thanks. I think my most obvious question has to be, will they stay on my knee throughout my exercises? Do they normally slide down? Or is that depending on the quality of the product?

    I don't know much about it so I assume tight bottoms are helpful for jogging in some way - you could wear trackies on top?
