Squawks,

My knee problem comes from hyperextending it way back in HS... It has gotten better over the years, but I try to keep the impact down when running. I do run on a relatively flat paved trail. I know its not the best impact wise, but in the DC Metro area, there are not much in the way of alternatives... Plus, there is no way I can run the 11-12 miles I am training for on grass/dirt trails simply because they dont exist. Not only that, the instability of the terrain in those places can make my knee problem worse...

The back problem is something I dealt with about 2 years ago, and I am just preventing it from coming back... I have been doing leglifts to strengthen the lower back, and so far so good...
