still having pain in my knee. If I would have gone longer it would have gone to my shin.

    Hi Desiree, thanks for the add! Seems like you knee and shin have been niggling at you a bit over the past few weeks, have you had it checked out by a physio or anything. I've only been running a few years but have learned the hard way to respond quickly to injuries to stop them escalating. If you feel your pain is not resolving itself might be worth getting it checked out. Hope I'm just paranoid!

    Yea, they have! I've been letting myself rest a lot between running lately due to the pain. I've been told to get new shoes, the ones i have are 16months old lol. So I am going to get new shoes and try it out again. If the pain continues i will take your advice and get my knee checked out by a doctor. I hope it's nothing serious!

    Where does your knee hurt? @ Bianca, my knee's have popped for years from a jumping injury as a kid. Great thing is they found no injury problems after a bad accident on 6/24/09, but the ITband was injured. It's healed nicely.

    Sounds like then ITband that starts just under the kneer cap on the outside of your knee and goes up. When mine had so much damage from the car accident this is what my Sports Doctor had me do, Ice several times a day, & right after walking or running, He told me to do a light jog until pain started, then walk. I'm a long distance runner so he told me to ride my bike for the rest of my miles, when the walking hurt. Walking and ice is the best he said.

    Thank you for the advice! I will keep this in mind. I am hoping new shoes will help, but if not, I will ice it often. thank you!!

    Your welcome, I was thinking about something else the doctor told me, & it was that treadmills were hard on the knees. It was never a problem for me because I can't stand them. I know that's what you're using mostly so I hope the new shoes and please ice work for you.

    oohh itbs. Yuck. I have delt with that one. A foam roller works great. Hurts but helps. Also, look up the francenstein walk done w/ a band. This helped mine a lot.

    Thank you Sheila! So helpful!& Shareen - once the weather warms up a bit i will run outdoors some days too. Maybe mixing it up a bit will help.

    I cannot stress enough that you should nit be running in shoes that are 16 months old.. For real, it will help you so much if you get new GOOD shoes. VERY good shoes.

    feel better!! my right knee hurts too after 5 miles on my bike...it pops a bit. I bought a knee wrap (from CVS) and it has relieved the pain a lot. Maybe try that?
