Rest, stop running if you feel pain.

If you feel sluggish, down, or in pain, the runner should stop the workout that day or reduce the running time as originally planned.

Rest helps restore energy and heals damage to the knee joints.

Ideally, runners should spend 1-2 days letting off steam during the week of running.

Jogging is not the culprit that harms the knee, on the contrary, it also helps to improve the health of articular cartilage, contributing to the prevention of knee osteoarthritis.

A nearly 20-year study, published in the U.S. National Library, found that while signs of knee osteoarthritis appeared in 32 percent of non-runners, for those who ran regularly, the rate was only 20 percent.

More than 2,000 people found that those who were jogging had a 29 percent lower risk of knee pain than those who didn’t.

Even people who used to run but have stopped running now have less knee pain than those who have never practiced this sport.
