I tried to run again. The last time I attempted this was 48 lbs ago and with terrible orthotics. I am not the guy that used to run when I was a high schooler.
I felt like my knees were going to buckle. Thankfully, carrying less weight made this very short run around my neighbourhood more pleasant for my knees and back.
I’m not sure as to whether I’ll try and extend the running. I am waiting for new orthotics which may or may not change the feeling running has on my knees.
