What can I do to help my achy knees?

Runner’s knee, or pain in the outside of the knee, is one of the most common injuries developed – mostly by beginners or athletes who have not run in a long time.
Runner’s knee (a.k.a. Cranky knees) go away by any/all of the following:
 
1.  Stretching every single day AFTER your workouts 
2.  Yoga 2-3x/week
3.  Making sure to have the right shoes
4.  Stop all interval training until pain goes away
5.  Cross training to get the right muscle groups balanced
8.   Having a strong core/mid-section to alleviate stress on your illiotibial band
When in doubt, see a physical therapist, chiropractor, massage therapist and/or personal trainer to achieve any/all of the above listed.   Knee pain/runners knee is not the end of your running career – only if you let it!
