Don’t let that stop you! A very large fraction of knee (and other joint) pain are that the wrong muscles are weak.


Most knee pain that I and folks around me have had was resolved by some combination of front or side leg raises and squats.

Edit: Before I started running, I had a lot of knee pain and it was getting in the way of me doing short runs like this and skiing. After breaking down, I went to a doctor, the doc did some exams and found nothing fundamentally wrong with my knee. She prescribed physical therapy, I did the exercises and kept doing them after PT was over. Some time later some issues started coming back because I got lazy with the exercises (still running) and a friend pointed me at that book. The book somewhat has a recipe of “If this hurts, do that. If you want to prevent this from hurting, do this other thing”. Totally totally worth it.
