Motivation & Support / Track

I ran track and cross country all through high school, and have done some huge trail runs over the past two years.  Just did a half marathon in November.  I have dealt with shin splints.  They can come from wearing the wrong type of shoe, over-pronation, sudden increase in mileage, running on uneven surface or hard surfaces.  The only thing you can do to get rid of them is to stop running for a bit to let them heal.  However, you can still workout.  Plyometric workouts are great for runners.  In fact you can get away with less miles if you add Plyometric workouts into the mix.  Here's one that might help: Plyometric Precision (for Improved Running Performance)

Other tricks: 1) purchase compression socks/sleeves that cover your calves and shins.  They can reduce the pain while running. 2) go to a running shoe store that can test your stride to fit you with the proper running shoe. 3) ice your shins right after running.

I think I'm going to do all that thanks. Also, yeah I think it's because of my shoes, running up and down hill, as well as lack of stretching. I'm going to buy better shoes with arches, since doc said my feet are almost flat and my arches are small.

Also, I will try and start that workout. Thanks

I'm something in between beginner and expert. I'm looking for indoor and I have only two weights.

Ask the Pros / Just wondering

Start light, and work your way up.  If you can do 15 reps relatively easy, that's a good
Place to start.

30 Somethings / Goal of losing 25 lbs in 2015

Welcome to Skimble, Stephen!  Sounds like you've had a great deal of success already.  Great job!  I would echo Nelson's suggestion, and I would add these thoughts: 1) Cardio is the way to go to lose weight.  Running, biking, a lot of crossfit type stuff, etc.  2) the diet (type of intake) will have a huge impact on getting to the next level.  3) Usually our bodies will hit a plataeu, and we have to do something extra to get us over that hump.  So a change in routine can help.  4) Some motivation can come from entering an event of some sort - like a race or something.  This would fit in with setting a short term goal, as Nelson suggested.  Wish you the best!

07 Jan
Thanks for the recommendations.
