    it's important to listen to your body. it could be a myriad of things.
    your weight impacting your knees? high levels of acid?
    running on an improper track?

    proper running surfaces help the knee joint to perform smoothly.
    the pain may be caused from irritated muscles and ligaments.

    quad work (leg extensions) help. also cutting back and observing
    where it is that you're going wrong. also maintaining a healthy
    diet is always good, fruit/vegs - cutting down high acid foods.

    hope this helps.

    and begin slitting throats.

    I invariably experience an intense bout of psychosomatic knee pain BEFORE jogging. In fact, it's so bad that it makes taking part in the activity quite impossible, so I always have a good lie down instead, and read a book or something to take my mind off it.

    I find that this approach is immeasurably good for my psychic and physical health. Apart from the immediate pre-jogging pain, I experience no adverse symptoms whatsoever from my participation in the activity, which I think is something that can be said of few other regular joggers.

    My experience on this...
    I used to run a mile everyday. Gradually, I began to feel intense pain in my knees, with each step. It has never subsided, but certain things make it go haywire, such as sitting cross-legged. I have been taking Tri-Flex, by GNC for 4 months, and any days without it feel like pure hell. It contains MSM, Glucosamine, and Chondroitin. These are all aids in joint mobility and flexibility. I noticed a difference after 3 days or less. It has been a miracle. I find I am more irritable and tired without it.
    What is normal to one, is incomprehensible to another.

    ALL anger in this world stems from a lack of control.


    All of reality bows to the illusion of life and death.

    You probably just need to take it a little easier.

    Here are some common causes.

    Be sure to stretch well before and after.

    On a more serious note than my previous post, do you walk much, or do other exercises that affect the leg muscles, or just jog? And what kinds of surfaces do you jog on?

    I don't have a car, so I walk everywhere.

    The Glucosamine and chondroitin stuff is great for stiff joints and can only help.

    Where is the pain? If it's inside or outside the knee you could be pronating or supinating and therefore should invest in a better pair of shoes. Go to a specialty running store where the workers are runners themselves. (i.e. no Foot Locker type stores) and they will spend a good amount of time finding the right shoe for you.

    I need new shoes, i've been meaning to go buy some, the threads are totally gone on them and theirs holes. I wouldn't be suprised at all if it's the shoes.

    That is a good possibility.
