Totally agree.

For me, I find that if I have a minimum volume of running, most of the aches are gone. My knees actually hurt more if I don't run for a week or two.

The only thing that really enabled me to build significant volume was going to a PT and finding out where the underlying weaknesses were. I incorporated those strengthening exercises into my gym routine and am good to go!
