I have battled knee pain since I was a teenager. I did a lot of intense training for sports year around and had knee injuries. I still have knee pain from time to time. The number one routine I use to help is 30 minutes of ice before I work out, stretching thoroughly after a workout, 30 minutes of ice after with ibuprofen. If the pain is really bad I take a day or two off, icing my knees for 30 minutes twice a day. My knees usually recover within a day or two but when they are really bad it can take up to a week.

I am having some of the same issues except that I do have hyper-extension in both knees which means they lock up sometimes if I move wrong and the knee joint hyper extends backward..I feel like a flamingo :/ I just want to be able to keep up with this program but I'm afraid these knees are telling me it might be too much pressure.

If it is causing actual pain I would highly suggest you get it checked out. You don't want to do further damage.

It's immensely important that the shoe fits.

Also consider this: Running or becoming a runner is not a requirement if you want to lose weight. Don't put undue pressure on yourself. Choose workouts which do not cause you pain (except for muscle burn of course). And most importantly, whatever you do, start slowly.

Wishing you much success.

There are different kinds of running shoes for different kinds of gaits. The shoe you purchased may not be the right kind of structure and it is throwing your running mechanics off thusly causing knee pain. What you can do is go to a real running shoe store and have the salesman analyze your foot/ankle structure. If your shoe checks out then you may want to consider seeing your doctor in order to rule out problems.

Hope that helps!

I've never been fitted for the shoe I have, but I bought them recently and made sure they were running shoes.

The first thing I need to ask you is are you wearing proper running shoes that have been fitted for you? If you don't have the right shoes you will get aches, pains and eventually injury.

Today I'm schedule to do day 1 of week 2, but I'm having knee pain. Last week I had pain in my left knee and this week it's in my right knee. What do I do? Do I stop training? Do I stretch it out? I don't want to injury myself I've never been jogger nor runner so I'm new to this.
