You may also want to check out IT band stretches. Very simple, but easier to understand when seen. I had some pressure on my knees when running. Friend recommended the strectches to me, pressure decreased a good amount and now is non-existent. Best of luck on your journey

Congratulations on getting in those first steps! I love the Jeff Galloway method of timed run/walk intervals. Currently I'm using 1 min run (actually a slow jog) and 1 minutes walk but I've also used 1 min run/2 minute walk or any other variation you want. It's good that you go slow to build up the muscle strength and cardio. Some of those things may go away as you work on it, if you continue to work up slowly. So glad you've joined us!

Hi, I joined about a week ago.
I've run 4 or 5 times. Mostly walked and jogged a bit. One day my back was irritated.
I felt a little pressure on my right knee, not really pain.
Is this some certain stretches or tips for a brand new person ?
