thanks. I am thinking compression only because the leg bones are compressing together? Not sure, just over all soreness the longer I go. I finally got a run in yesterday, I felt really sluggish, but was averaging an 11 minute pace. This was my second run since the 11.54 race. I was doing 3/1 splits. Was having to stop short on a few 3 minutes. I'll maybe try 2.5/1 tomorrow.

Hopefully my 10K tomorrow will be un eventful!

I've never heard of knee compression with regard to running -- something new to me.

One other option might be to switch to an interval with more walking. Jeff says that if more walking enables you to do the miles, you still get the benefit. More walking = less pounding. Just throwing ideas out.

I believe I am pretty centered. Like I said, it appears to be compression. I do not feel this in the ankles, thankfully.

I was thinking the same thing, just increase mileage at a slower pace that what the 1/2 marathon calls for. thanks

FORMERNONRUNNER, that's great! Congratulations!

BAILEYS7OF9, that sounds scary! Is your foot slightly out in front of your center of gravity when you land? That can jar the joints. Sometimes shortening your stride to make sure you are landing with your foot/leg directly underneath you reduces the jarring. Or you may just need to stay at your current long run mileage longer to give your ligaments and tendons more time to adapt. Running does pound them. Good luck!

Once I hit that 6.5/7 mile mark, when I land on the leg, there is a compression shock in the knee joint. So not above the knee, and not just under the knee cap, but that's close.

It's like the joints are saying, okay, 6.5 miles is enough for one day!

That is GREAT FORMERNONRUNNER!

BAILEYS7OF9, some types of knee pain are actually caused by muscle knots and tightness in the upper leg. The tightening up of the muscles pulls on / strains the tendons that attach around the knee. The foam roller can really help with this sort of pain by lengthening the muscle, thus relieving the strain around the knee.

When you say "compression soreness," where exactly is this located -- next to the knee or underneath the knee cap?

I have found on all my runs over 6.5 miles that my knees start having compression soreness. It's not pain, but discomfort. I have posted this and people say it's normal, means I'm getting stronger, etc. However, I would have thought it would more the soreness further out mileage wise, but its not. still about 6.5 miles.

for the race, I was doing a 10.5 mile pace the first 5-6 miles vs my 13.25 training pace.

I am not using a foam roller, but not sure it would matter in this case?? as the discomfort is during the run not after.

I blogged never in a million yrs a few weeks back. Never in a million years would I EVER consider an ice bath. On my 9.5 mile run, that is all I could think about at mile 7. I did do the bath. After the 11.54 miles, I was icing my knees for hours.

BAILEYS7OF9, Congratulations on your race! What sort of "knee complaining" are you dealing with? Do you use a foam roller?

I ran my first big race. Fort2Base on 9-11. It was 10 Nautical miles, 11.54 regular miles. I wanted to be under 2:20 and I did it in 2:16 emoticon

But on the flip side, my knees hurt so bad at mile 8 I thought I was done for, then my quads started screaming too. I believe it was too fast too soon for distance so I have decided to not run the 1/2 the end of Oct. I do have a 10K this Saturday, then I'll just run for fun.

I'll increase my mileage, but slower than the 1/2 training plan as anything over 6.5 miles my knees start to complain.

Even after a killer morning migraine, I was able the run the 9/11 Heroes Run last evening.

Thank God for run/walk/run. I would have stopped on the first mile if I still ran straight, they way I felt from the migraine meds. I felt much better by mile 2 and ended up with a 10:59 split. One of my best!

Small victory I guess, but I ran my first .25 mile without walking. My running intervals are getting longer! A year ago I could barely run 30 seconds...

First 5 miler under my belt - finished in 1:02 (waiting for official time) - not terrible considering that I am coming back from injury and glad I got out there and did it. Finally cooling off in NE Ohio so all good!

Great job Body Bling. I think one of the best thing to learn is that you can run a distance comfortable. You can then stretch yourself and try to run it faster.

Laurie, Sounds like you celebrated your birthday in true style.

I'm proud that I finished my 1st 5K this year in the middle of the pack. 42:47 minutes and ended up 145 of 205 runners. I did a 1 minute walk/30 second run. I wasn't out of breath or hurting at that pace so I'm going to start upping the running and see what happens.

An it harm none do what ye will.

I'm happy with my 65.5 hot miles in August and really surprised to see that my 2 year total is now up to 2215.89! Still haven't caught up with Nanjet, however.

I'm hoping to add to that big time in September as I begin training more seriously for several half marathons in the fall and for marathon #6 in February.

Wow! That's some serious mileage!

I ran my furthest thsu far today, 6 miles. I'm a newbie, been running since July so I was proud of that. Now if I can just get it done faster than a snail's pace!

Here it is a place to share what you are proud of for the month of September. So stop by and tell us what you have been doing and don't forget to also come by and encourage your teammates. I'll try to remember to include a link to the thread with the weekly list of races.

I'll start with a personal victory---It's an end of August thing---I ran my highest monthly mileage total last month 162.2. I was helped by having 2 long runs in the month. I'm doing the Galloway full marathon with a time goal. Long runs are only every 3 weeks---so usually I only run one a month.
