You know, I think I was describing it badly. When I said "inside" I meant literally inside the knee, on a heel strike it felt as though the pain was right where the two bones of my leg meet. I noticed the screeching pain on the outside of my right knee when I did a groin stretch, or any stretch that put my bent right leg with a knee down to the floor.
I've been trying a couple of stretches I found on the internet http://www.jeffgalloway.com/training/injuries.html
, but I'm having trouble feeling the stretch - which I can only assume means I'm doing it wrong (sigh).
While I'm taking a break from running to let this thing get sorted I'm planning some trips to the weight room at the gym. I guess my heart was fighting fit and ready for the increased mileage but my legs were still a wee bit too wobbly to handle the distance. Another lesson learned!
