I've stepped up my running (did seven miles today and 10 on Wednesday). Now IU have a slight pain just above my right knee cap. I am told it can be avoided with exercies and warm-ups. Anyone got any ideas?

Probably best to see a sports physio to find out which exercises you need for that specific pain.

u need to get rid if damage first. then stretch n strength to prevent. exercises will depend what caused it. getting rid of damage is usual advice: stop runnuing, rest, elevate affected area, cold pach on it, bag o frozen peas. ibuprofen to reduce swelling or inflamation. need a physio or run form coach to advise u on cause tho. Good luck. :-)G
