Thanks, much appreciated!
My knees are sore for about half an hour, also after running, doesn't last long, lasts a little longer if I run longer... My legs are also red and hot, never thought much of it and I have been running for 8 years, exercising 20+ years... It goes away so I don't worry about it... I always thougth the reason they got red and hot was because there's a lot of blood flowing through my legs when I workout....
So, unless it lasts a very long time and doesn't go away, hurts badly, I wouldn't worry too much about it....
