Joggers Knee

I thought getting used to jogging was going to well. I, like most beginners starting out in learning how to run for fitness soon discover that running on Tarmac rather than a soft grass verge causes problems with underdeveloped leg muscles. After what has been for the last few days a routine jog around the park ended abruptly with a shooting pain to my right knee.
I have learnt early on and thank goodness I have, that an injury at this stage is easily repairable and it is only down to the fact that I do not know how to warm up and cool down properly or run on the right conditions that has caused this injury. I know that taking a week off to jogging will repair the damage and it has taught me a lesson that there is a lot more to learning how to run or jog.
