    acarpenter89 about shin splints: I get that when I run every other day, To me that's too much, I need an extra rest day before running again. And when I run too fast, I get all sorts of injury on the tendons. So when restarting running, I always start slow, building up my running duration (so my tendons can adapt, it costs way more time than for muscles or your cardiovascular fitness). Then, when I am at the distance I like, I will add interval training to increase my speed.

I didnt really before, but I do now to do my best to prevent injury because i did the same thing to my calf muscle twice(pulled, tore...idk but it hurt like hell) My Dr also told me to get good running shoes. (Evidently Under Armor brand doesnt cut it, according to her)
    thanks, i've decided to build up to walking 1 hour and then when i can walk 1 hour for 30 days in a row then i will try running.

    i do a lot of stretching and upper body work when I am doing a running program. I dont do too much additional lower body unless it is suggested in program

    CaptainCanuck my biggest issue (other than the fact I do not enjoy running) is every time I start trying to make myself run I get really bad shin splints (maybe i am pushing too hard) but i get bicycling and rowing too. I tend to have chronically tight calf muscles.Matter of fact I am hoping neilarey will come up with a 30 day shin splint prevention challenge

    I haven't gone through this stream for running, but it looks like 8 weeks to 5k might be a good next challenge.

    Also 30 Days of Change is a program that will get your running to progress.
