In any case, it didn't last after I stopped running or anything, just as I was running did I feel the pain.
Joanna,How are your thigh muscles? Do target them by doing lunges or squats? I don't wanna sound like Capt'n Obvious, but you should take it easy especially if the pain persists.It sounds like you already have an idea what it could be (stride,overuse, shoes etc)

Ed, your plan sounds very do-able.

As for me, on whim last night,I registered for a Super Bowl 10k race this upcoming Sunday. Registration was closing so I figured what the heck, I did it last year in 54:50. The weather forecast looks really good for next weekend and it should be a fun "flat" race.

Thumbs up Re:

My goal is to be able to run/jog an entire mile without slowing down. Being overweight makes this incredibly difficult, but I am slowly making my way

Great goal,and you will get there. I started out with that same goal 4 years ago and I'm now running 10k's & 1/2 marathons.
I ran my first 10k of the year on Sunday and had a pace of 8:55- not incredibly fast, but it was a consistent pace. Finish time was 55:20, my fastest 10k time from last year was 45:35, so I've got some work ahead of me.

Ran three miles today. Had some slight aches in my knee, but not sharp pains. I think the pain has to do with how I distribute the load, because I can really feel a difference between the two legs. My right leg tends to get most of my weight on the ankle, whereas my left takes it on the knee. Not really sure how to fix it.

Ran a 1/2 marathon yesterday in 2:37- kinda disapointed in my time because I ran it in 2:06 last year, but at least I finished The temps were in the high 70's with a slight breeze so that may have been a factor. I placed 1373 out of 2084 runners so I guess that wasn't too bad...

I'm gonna chill from running competitively for a bit, I just got a Kayak and I ready to do some paddling and some fishing. The Striper run is nearing and I wanna get out there catch some fish
