post #1771 of 12863
damn you guys must really be great shape... i'm trying to lose about 30 lbs or so this year, just started going to the gym and ran about 2.5m on the treadmill. did a hell of a number on my shins. i'm gonna try and increase the run to about 45 mins soon, but my legs always start to hurt after 5-10 mins on that thing...

losing weight = high intensity workouts. You don't need to be doing long distance running, especially if you're shins are hurting. Lift weights, low weight, high rep, and give yourself like 60 second rests in between sets.

On the page back we all mentioned our displeasure towards the 'dreadmill'. If your new to running and overweight, ease yourself into it. If you shins are getting ruined calm it down. In the mean time take advantage of other things at your gym.

Use the elliptical, the bike, the rowing machine, etc. if running bothers your shins. There are a lot of ways to do cardio without the impact of running.

Congratulations - that's an excellent time!

A seven mile hilly; it was a good one and at 48 years young I'm getting back to a respectable time and weight which is making me feel confident again.

Great run. That's around about my PB for a half; or it was 10 years ago. My best 10k is 34.35 when I was 36 but now I just train for fun: I'm getting too old

Awesome job Myles!!!

10 miles last night in 1:21:08. I've been working on my negative splits. I hope it pays off in 2 weeks when I attempt a sub 4 hour 26.2.

Amazing time, congrats! A friend of mine ran her own PR at 1:52 in the same event.


I ended up running a bit over 8 miles today. Last mile was painful as I tripped over the edge of a pavement (it was dark), landed on my right knee, and then had to hobble the rest of the way. Totally worth it tho.

Now that's what I call fast. Nice run. Much hill work in that race?

Have you invested in a good pair of running shoes first? If you have access to a professional running shop, they can usually get you fit well in a shoe you need. Shin splints are often a result of running in old shoes (not sure if you have shin splints though)
