Any advice on managing chronic low back pain and running? I'm hoping to start up with regular yoga soon and I'm currently going through physical therapy. I also do Mmaxout Fitness, which has heavy core involvement. I just got fitted for shoes-- Brooks Glycerins. Unfortunately, running is what ends up giving me the most pain but I LOVE IT SO MUCH that I won't give it up. Any thoughts?

If you get a chance to watch the "Last Mile", it is a great movie asking why do you run? It was filmed partially here in town and will be shown at the Boston Film Festival at the Boston Marathon.

Worked up to my first 12 miler finally this weekend. Knee felt good during and just a little agitated that night, but not a problem. Going to Volunteer at Buckeye Tail 50K this weekend. Hope next year I can participate.

Backpacked 15 miles this weekend. Ran 4 more. Knee feels good and I'm gonna stop babying it. Still sore to the touch but not so much after the run.

My 2 prior pairs I bought from "The Right Fit" in findlay, Ohio. They are a therapuetic athletic store, They did a test that showed normal arch and they measured my shoe size, then I was able to run on their treadmill. So unless there's more to it than that I'd say so. They put me in Asics Gel 2130 and Saucony (can't remember style) the last time. I just bought a pair of Brooks Pure Connect2 but haven't had any miles on them yet.

Rayman, Have you been properly fitted and are you running in the right shoes?

So has anyone ever had this problem and if so have any thoughts to speed up recovery?? I can run just fine, but the day after 2 or 3 even the inside of my knee is (stiff and sore) and sore to the touch also. If I put ice on it then stiffens up more, if I put heat on it loosens up but still sore inside and out. It's been 4 mos and I've wore a brace, neoprene sleeve, heat rub and it seems a slight better but yet not really.

Ran 2-1/2 miles last night, calves are pretty sore guess I haven't been working them hard enough in gym. They hurt enough that it is hard to tell if my knee is hurting, I'll take that as a good sign for the knee.
