    Unhappy Odd pains from jogging?

    I started jogging JAN 6th, it was all peachy until about 2 days ago. My knees feel more stiff and I get pains when I start jogging, but it takes me about 2 mins to be able withstand the pain.

    I found this odd because I assume these pains would come from starting my jogging routine. Yes I also have running shoes. Any ideas?

    Maybe micro fractures/shin splints. Your body needs to adjust to the new routine. Make sure you get a lot of calcium too.

    I agree with the above... magnesium too. and potassium.

    Bear in mind I am NOT a doctor so do not take my word for gospel. I did however work at a health food store as a manager if that makes me any kind of qualified LOL!

    Maybe your leg fell off. Since we're all providing helpful tips here....


    If it continues - Rest a bit. Start the routine up again. If you were coming from a not very active lifestyle, you could have easily just shocked your system a bit.

    I was born and raised in Jersey. I just moved to Philadelphia about 3 years ago.
    I dont want to go back there. When I cross the bridge to go back to Jersey I feel my soul draining out of me, ever so slowly.

    Are you warming up before running? (Stretching)

    Indeed, I have a feeling not long enough though, usually 10 seconds each.

    Warm-ups should be 5-10 minutes.

    Also, are you stretching after running? It helps.
