Right knee got a little weird tonight

I planned on doing 3 miles tonight. I headed out nice and slow and steady. I was about a half a mile in when it felt like my knee was shaking, kind of like when you do all the pushups you can do. It was under my kneecap. Nothing major, I really had to concentrate on it to realize what I was even feeling. That moved on to a weird warm sensation under my knee. It was really never pain, but I still turned it around at the mile mark. This knee does randomly feel a little stiff, so we'll just see how things go. I iced it tonight. I don't plan anything crazy tomorrow night. Just 3, unless I feel like turning around early again.

Last week I posted a message on runnersworld.com checking for any slow runners in the GR area. Check out what I got:

Hi Amy! My name is Mike. This is our schedule: Mondays and Wednesday's we are at the Middle School. We start at 6pm and usually go until 7pm. Mondays we do mile repeats. Wednesdays we do quarter mile repeats. These are technically speed workouts but everyone runs at their own pace. Then on saturday morning, 8am we are at the park. Saturdays are our distance runs. We always have someone lay out a course to run and someone in a car to bring up water and gatorade. Our group has wide ranges of abilities. We've got some very fast elite runners and we've also got some very slow beginners. You will never be without someone to run with. If you have any more questions just email me

Sounds pretty cool, huh? I think I'm going to email him, and then show up next monday. EEk. Its a little scary for me, but not completely. The more contact I have with runners (blogs, rw.com discussions, my running store) the more I realize that they are a very welcoming and helpful community. I kind of excited.

That running group sounds awesome! You'll have to let us know how it goes. I hope your knee feels better tomorrow.

I like the sounds of this one the best so far. Theres a pretty serious one that my running store runs, but that's too intimidating for me. And then there is one that you can't be in you are straight. This one sounds pretty good though!

hey, if he SAYS those are slow workouts, I'd say it's a great group to check out! beats the running store crowd, for sure. Be careful about that knee- take it easy. 3 days off should solve it, but if not, try just not pushing your pace/distance. I'm so happy to read about your great progress. You're getting there- you're doing it!!!

Hey Amy - randomly stiff knees are never fun. After workouts I sometimes get randomly stiff everythings ;)

There is a blogsite that right now is showing 3 simple exercises designed to help with function of the knee, hip and upper body specifically for running that you might find useful. Check it out at

Let me know if you like it!
