I have though about renting 'Run Fat Boy Run' but didn't know if it would be jsut too stupid. Maybe I will pick it up!! I'm in the mood for a really silly movie.

Its a British movie and im British so it appeals to my British sense of humour.

If you liked 'The Full Monty' you should be safe.

I loved it! And it has a token American in it.

All of you runners, I have a question. I ran/walked 10 miles today (2 seperate runs). Behind my left knee is hurting tonight. I have run more in the last 2 weeks than ever and I know my joints are tired, but how do I know if I have injured myself. I don't want to rest it. Should I push through and run or should I walk for a few days. It doesn't feel like muscle pain and is not Super painful. Just VERY annoying. I haven't tried to run on it since it started hurting so I don't know if that makes it worse or not. I didn't injure it that I am aware of. What do yall think. I just run. I realy don't have any idea what I am doing. I just know I have 1 more week in the Nike+ challenge and want to finish strong.

It sounds like an overuse injury. You really need to rest it or it will just get worse.

Renewedhope. I would rest your knee for a couple of days. Moist heat and light stretching can help to you.

Ok, I just added another 3.1 mile run in less than 30 minutes followed by minute cooldown. Difference this time was I paused the treadmill every 1/2 mile to drop to the floor and do 20 pushups. Nothing earth shattering, but it made it different. Thought I would have to drop the number of pushups each time I paused, but never happened. Next time I try this I'll try for 25 pushups.:scared2:
