comment Stretches and muscle work for Supination or Underpronation
Update: I tried running outdoor, on uneven ground. Used my older shoes, and gained and extra mile. So, the knee needs some rest and recover time, and its looking like the shoes are/were the main problem. Still experienced some discomfort and little pain, but that maybe partly do to it being injured and not healed. I'll update again a few weeks once i rest ny knee and get some proper runnign shoes.

The shoes maybe my biggest problem. I also started doing a particular exercise before running. Lay on your side, use one of those rubber stretch work bands, and do side leg lifts. I did min stretching, but a lot of side leg lifts the last 2 days. More post stretching. Going to look into your suggested pre-stretching.

Update: I used my older running shoes again last night on the treadmill, went 2 miles and no pain. Plus i am also wearing IT band strap above my knee. Going to rest a few days, and try an outdoor, hopefully push 3 miles. My newer shoes would cause sharp pain @ 1.5 miles.

Definitely do some shoe research. It looks like my IT Band Syndrome, was caused by my newer running shoes, which corrected one problem. But now after a few months caused an over use injury, they were causing under-pronation(subpination).

Plus i have very tight tendons and ligaments, poor posture. 6'3, when i look down to watch my feet occassionally, i notice my legs are bent, not slightly. like i'm running in a pre-squat position.

I was just reading about barefoot running. Not sure i want to try it. I am definitely a heel striking in shoes. I was looking at my pair the other night, and the back edge of the heel is excessively worn. Hoping to find a good book on training to go more mid foot.

I did get a foam roller, did not help. the shoe selection seemed to be the biggest help so far. the more i read, the more i think there is no one or two magical solution for everyone, its going to be hit or miss til you find a solution. Its just aggravating to go thru the misses.
