I would love to try the C25K program, but every time I start running (even just for a couple minutes), I end up with pain in my shins that keeps me from exercise...or even walking normally for the next 2-4 days. I recently switched from the elliptical to the treadmill (most days) because of my little problem with toes falling asleep. I tend to work longer on the treadmill than I ever did on the elliptical because of the lack of discomfort in the toes, although I did "jog" faster on the elliptical than I walk on the treadmill. I've been putting the treadmill on a pretty steep incline in order to get my heart rate up but not speed up to jogging or running. I've been hoping that as I lose weight, I'll have fewer problems with shin splint pain, but I was wondering if anyone else had similar problems, and if you've found any other solutions.
I'm coming to the realization that it never hurts to ask
I love these boards!
