Rest and cold compress is always the best you can do for your knees.

I have had repetitive knee injuries over the last 3 years and pain killers are not the solution... Yes they make you feel better but do not get hooked onto them...

Make sure you use an ice pack after every .. I mean EVERY workout.. how ever small and low impact.

Also, if you are running outdoors.. try using the turf more than the sidewalk if that's an option.

I would also suggest seeing your doctor and figure out if you require physical therapy.
In the mean time...ICE is the mantra..

All the Best!!

Disclaimer: I am not a certified physician but have had knee injuries that keep troubling me every now and then.

What are you doing to warm up and stretch? I had a sore knee and stopped running last night and just walked. At about mile three of my walk, I switched to running and ran the rest of the way home, about a mile. I was fine. When I mentioned it to my husband, he told me that I needed to warm up and stretch more.

Believe me, this chick doesn't run fast... i'm more jogging than running. And I've taken almost a week off, still achy. I've been walking just to try and stay active but i'm nervouse to try and jog again. When i do try, I feel like forrest gump -- running with leg braces on, because i can hardly bend my knees. :(

Slow your running down. If your knees continue to hurt, consult a doctor. Do NOT try and run thru pain!

I've had some aches and pains when I started. I still get the sore feet....almost a numbness in the soles of my feet. But, one thing I've noticed is that its getting better as I go along. Today, no pain anywhere!
Just take it easy and give yourself a rest day or at least a day when you do something easier to help your recovery. It will get better.
