I've had horrible knees all my life. I was concerned about it when I started exercising, and I had a few days when my knees were a little stiff. But in general, if I didn't go overboard on the exercise I didn't have any problems. Now that I've been exercising for several months and I've lost a good bit of weight, I rarely have any knee pains.

My knees use to grind too. I had bad knees for years. I had a hard time to kneal in church too. Since I started running and I've lost some weight they don't do it anymore... You might want to get fitted for your sneakers at a good running store if you haven't yet.
HOpe that helps!

January Goal 80K
Life is to short to spend it sitting on the couch. Get up and run!!! Dee
Oh yeah! Couch to 5K!! I actually STARTED that before the holidays, but I had printed it out and lost the program, and had been wanting to pick something back up again! Cool, thanks for the link. I'm excited!!

I'm new here too. I just started the C25k last week. I start week 2 today. The C25k is the Couch to 5k program that everyone in this group seems to be using or has used. The program works you up to being able to run a 5k in 9 weeks.
I hope this helps. If you have any other questions feel free to ask.
Your goal should be out of reach but not out of sight.
