Re: Jump Rope Instead of Road Work?
If you're a heel striker, try looking into forefoot/midfoot striking and see it helps with your knee problems.
Although, ease into the mileage a bit. Forefoot/midfoot running will give you a new set of injuries if your body is unaccustomed to it. These guys who abruptly change their running form eventually have issues with their plantar fascia, calf muscles / achilles tendon, and metatarsals.
