We all get injured sometime. I thought that a group where people can share what they've learned about how to treat various injuries would be really helpful....so here it is.See More

In your post you did not say if you have read The Cool Impossible, if you hav'nt it's a must & so transformative.
It sounds to me as if your sore knees are a result of something changing. This could be a change of form, number of training days, terrain, shoes, number of rest days, introduction of strength training, changed training ,etc or a combination of these.
When we start sometimes our enthusam gets ahead of us and we try too much too quickly. We want to emulate all the amazing things we read about here but we have to start at the start being methodical, consistent ensuring to listen to our bodies.
Does the pain stop you from walking or does it happen only when you run or attempt to run & have you changed anything you can think of?

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since vital to disclose it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(abrahamakim@outlook.com) for full details.
Have a wonderful day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Abraham
