Same thing here -- pain on inner side, low, of right knee. My shoes aren't that old, but maybe I need to get new ones for this. I've never really jogged before so it's easy to dismiss aches and pains as "I just need to do this more." I have iced it the past two times after sessions (I've been doing them on the treadmill at 3.2 and 4.2/4.4/4.5 usually.)

What a coincidence! I had a pain in my right knee while jogging/walking. I went out and bought a new pair of sneakers. I've had my old pair for over 2 years now. Yesterday, I felt fine as I jogged.

Followed Laurie5658's advice about checking out the sneakers I was using. They were too old. So I went to a Reebok outlet and purchased a pair of Flexride sneakers (clearance for about $60). When I tried them on it felt like they were made for me!! I have been using them for about a month now and I NO LONGER HAVE PAIN!! If you can, check out these sneakers! They also have them for men!

I started having some knee pain during week 3 as well, but it doesn't really hurt when I run, just kind of sour afterward. Asked my Chiropractor and he said not to worry too much, when you start something new unless it really gets bad or hurts alll the time. I got new shoes, but between work and weather, I missed two weeks, and just started over this morning on the tread mill, so far no pain, maybe I needed a rest, or maybe it was the shoes?! I am really determined to finish this even if it takes me 5 months until I finish and do my 5K

My sneakers are kinda old. I have no idea how long I have had them but I rarely used them. The only thing I know about them is that the bottom says Cross trekkers. I will have to check my local yellow pages for a running store in my area. Thanks for pointing this out. I will keep you posted how this turns out.

Live each day to the fullest.

I am having the exact same problem in the same area doing the same 3.0. I just spent 137.00 on New Balance cross trainers with insoles for added support and it makes no difference. I was attributing mine to my weight.

The first thing I need to ask is what kind of shoes are you wearing for yur running? Have you been fitted with the correct type of running shoe at a running shoe store? This could possibly be the problem. It could be that your knees are simply trying to adapt to the shock of this new activity. Keep a watchful eye on your knee and see how it goes. If it keeps up or the pain becaomes worse, stop and let it rest. Ultimately, you may want to have it checked by a doctor.

I am at the halfway point and I feel great. I have alot of energy and I feel very positive about myself!! Thought my breathing (asthma from exercising) would kick me out of this but my pace isn't that fast, at the jog 3.6 / walk 3.0, so the breathing is slow and controlled. But my knees are an ouch!! They are tender. If you start just below the knee cap and move your finger towards the inside of my leg. There is a tender spot. Right hurts more than the left. I get the same kind of pain from doing lunges.
I think my knees are on the weak side and could uses some exercise ideas for them. I really do not want to stop training. I am going to slow my pace down even more. If that doesn't help I will stop and give them a rest. But this tenderness will come back when I start up again. Any ideas would be gratefully accepted.


Live each day to the fullest.
