    As the title states. I went jogging on 3 consecutive days over a week ago, feeling good the first two times, but the third time it really started to hurt. Its been over a week and it my knee's still kind ofl hurt. I can skip , and jog on the spot ok, but walking down stairs makes my knee's really sore.

    Can FN recommend any exercises / stretches to help me? much love

    Ice your knees after you're done jogging and you might want to try glucosamine.

    -take a day off between sessions
    -ice after running, heat in the evenings
    -get good shoes

    I like taking a long hot bath, that really helped with shin/knee pain for me.

    Make sure to stretch before and after running also.

    Become a powerlifter, then running will be out of the picture.

    See now everyone says that, but if I don't stretch *a bit* before running I get crazy sore and uncomfortable for the entire run.

    Dynamic warmups ftw! Just warm up slowly. You don't have to bust into a full out sprint right away. I used to do 3-4 run/walk segments before really starting to run.

    Improving ankle and hip mobility and strengthening the glutes will go a long way in preventing anterior knee pain.

    yeah, working the glutes is key.

    you should also work all of the muscle groups that surround the knees (quads, hams, calves)

    if you're going to run, try to do so on a soft surface with decent shoes. stretch before and after running. ice your knees after running and take an anti-inflamitory.

    try mixing swimming/biking in with your running routine. they're both easier on your knees, and can improve your running.

    Was it joint pain or something else?

    Could be overtraining, worn/bad shoes, or a combination of both.

    I always start off with a really slow jog. I hate walking though so I never do...I don't care how sore or cramped I am. :o

    wow thanks for the feedback OT

    just a bit of history on me.. ive been doing martial arts for about 8 years, been lurking on FN for 18 months, and been lifting for the last 6 motnhs. my goals are different to most of FN's, in that i go for higher reps with less weights, i lift mainly to supplement my martial arts

    onto my knee's - i have been taking glucosamine for the last couple of days. ive also rode my bike a lot in the last few months, i just wanted a change of pace. and boy jogging was a _lot_ harder than riding ;) i last night put some deep heat on too (cant belive ive spent the last week forgetting about that).. oh and ive got some proper shoes too, for when im all better

    thanks FN

    Glucosamine takes several weeks to kick in, so just keep taking it and don't slack. Fish oil too would be good, and vitamin C.

    directly underneath/inside my knee caps.. espeically when i walk down stairs. when i run, and my feet goes up parallel to the floor it hurts the area down my leg under my knee's, just up above the shins. in general, it hurts below the knee caps, and to the outside of my legs, like i can feel a concentrated spot
