Default Is it OK to start running again?

Ok... two weeks ago I participated in a "run" for the Houston SPCA. Well... I think that the fact that I didn't warm up the same way I normally do added to the fact that I was running on concrete... well... my legs didn't like that. By the time I finished the half mile run (due to rain it was cut short), at a walk/run... my lower right leg was KILLING me. Sharp pains and all.

Since then... I haven't run. And I LOVE running... I'm just so scared of hurting my leg again... it only just in the past week stopped being painful when I walk on it.

So... my question is... if I run on a treadmill... and stick with only 30 minutes of walk/run instead of my normal 45-hour... walk and run mind you... would that be too much? Or should I just switch to brisk/speed walking for now?

Your plan sounds sound to me. Make sure you stretch before AND after and just do what feels good the first time out. If it was me, if I felt a little twinge I'd quit running. I don't mess around with running. There's just so much you can mess up.

Did you get shin splints?

haha... whoops. I mean 45 minutes of course... 45 hours would be... well... awesome.

But yeah... i think they were shin splints. At the moment, they don't seem to be hurting anymore... but I haven't been running. So yeah.

Thanks.
