I started out March and April with higher milage than prior seasons after 3mths break over winter. Last year, i rode without any knee issues (although at lower intensity than i started the past 2 months)
I now have soreness and have aches on the front/outside (lateral/posterior side) of my left knee. I think it is due to my shoes/pedals and misalignment?? (My right knee is fine)
I have a set of SPD pedals (Shimano PD-M540) and an old pair of MTB shoes. Current cleats have 4 degree float and have tried to loosen up the pedals to allow more float, but not sure if this works? I have also played a bit with the alignment of the shoes but not sure about how to do it.
What should i do, please advice? I am willing to buy new pedals/shoes or do whatever it takes to reduce the risk of escalating knee problems.
