I am trying to get back in shape and started running. After a few runs (treadmill at the gym) both my knees are really hurting.
- Is this due to a lack of stretching?
- Is this overcompensating for weakness in other muscles ?
What would i be doing that would make my knees hurt. I have run in the past and never had this specific pain.
Also, is there any recommendation to heal from this. I have stopped running for 3 days and my knees still hurt even when walking or going up stairs, etc.
If it is weakness in other leg muscles I would appreciate any exercise suggestions
