new runner knee pain
« on: June 25, 2008, 12:09:20 PM »
Can someone please help-


I started to train for a half marathon a few weeks ago- I have not ran in years-  I had the normal aches and pains until a week ago- After about two miles my left knee( I had an acl 18 years aga) started to stiffin up- So I walked about another mile . The knee got stiffer and stiffer as the day went  on -  The next day I could hardly walk-  I just took some advil- well by last wednesday both knees are hurting- The inside part of the knees when you press on it they both hurt and  the crease behind the knee is stiff-

I have been streching  and icing  and taking advil- but now I limp with both knees-

Let me also tell you that I bought new running shoes from the running store before I started running and also arch supports-

Do you think the shoes and arch supports made my knees this sore?

I will take any advice!!!!!!
