Further to my post the other day about my painful knees after my backpacking trip to the Southern Uplands and as a future reference for others who may get problems with their body ! Robin at blogpackinglight suggested a book to get which I believe has helped him in the past. Keep Your Joints Young by Sarah Key An in depth book on all areas of the body not just knees. I got it on Amazon for £7.29 together with an excellent little book just on knees – Treat Your Own Knees by Jim Johnson priced at £4.92 with some simple exercises to strengthen the quads, and daily regimes.
I am trying out these exercises plus spending time on the exercise bike – I will let you know how I get on. Time to sign off now and get on my bike !
