Topic - Ankle weights and walking with weighted pack

Double Knee Bar - on 03 Apr 2012
Late 2010 and the first half of 2011 I was running twice a week along side my training for climbing. I ran the local half marathon and had major knee locking issues after which resulted in an end to my running and a short (but difficult) lay off from climbing.
I've done a considerable amount of climbing and hillwalking since and I'm climbing harder than ever. However I'm missing the cardio benefit that running brought me.
I'm too scared to run again in case I set my knee off.
What do people think of walking with a weighted pack and/or ankle weights to intensify the exercise?
