During a recent run my iliotibal band became very painful, on the advice of a friend who is a serious runner I'm taking a few days off and icing it. We've thought about causes and agree that one of them is probably because the muscles in the front of my legs aren't as strong as they should be. I used to have a lot of clicking in the knee joints when I walked which a doctor told me was because my muscles weren't strong enough to hold my knee cap up high enough.
Does anyone know any good exercises to strengthen the muscles in the front of the legs?

When choosing between two evils, I always like to pick the one I haven't tried before.
