Last time I had knee pain with the wobbly feeling, I ended up doing physical therapy. They said it was due to my IT band being too tight. There are a bunch of stretches available on the web, but what really helps me is a foam roller. You lie on it and roll yourself over it, and it helps work out the knots that form. I do it every time I run now, and am doing so much better at avoiding the discomfort.

I'm changing my life, one step at a time.

Yes, actually my shoes are a little over a month old. Perhaps I'm still getting used them.

My knees have been feeling better, I think I just tried to up my distance a little too quickly and paid the price for a few weeks.

Thanks for the responses! emoticon

Hmm, I guess you're probably right. I haven't experienced knee pain before, but then, I've never run this much before either!

Not sure if this is the best advice but most of the time I had knee pain. Most of my pain was post run when I would ice and elevate them. If they hurt when running I just kind of dealt with it, though the pain never became too horrible. If it really bothers you, you could always ask your doctor. Unfortunately it seems knee pain comes with running.

After an overly ambitious 7 mile run last week, I noticed that my knees were feeling kind of weird - not really painful, but kind of wobbly, if that makes sense. That night, I iced them, and I took a few days off of running.

Now I'm noticing they're starting to hurt a little while I run.

How do you take care of knee pain? I'm making sure I don't overdo it again, but other than stopping, how do I let them heal?
