I have just started running about two weeks ago and my knees are killing me. I went out last weekend and bought a new pair of running shoes thinking that was the problem. But it hasn't helped. I tried running this evening and just couldn't do it. A girl I work with says it could be from running on asphalt. If that is the case what running shoes do you recommend?Answer Question
I don't think it's the shoes. I think you have to get used to running. My Physical Therapist says it's awful for knees but I found a simple exercise to help when i have knee problems. They are mini squats. Just squat a few inches (maybe 6), legs about 10 inches apart. Do 30, 3 times a day. See if that helps. I couldn't find a sweet pea running!
