I've never been a good runner. Actually anytime I run I usually get shin splints and crazy sore calves by either the first or second day of running. I always stretch, but it never was enough, and I still always got them. It is so frustrating cause I've always wanted to run.
Butttt. I have been running just about every day for the past few weeks. (side note I'm doing Cat's 120 mile challenge) And know what, no shin splints! That's right I have discovered the secret to my shin splints and sore legs! Which also happens to be my new love.
Yoga. Bob Haper Yoga to be specific. I love yoga!! I do it 3 times a week. And Anytime I do feel shin splints coming on I do yoga, and the next time I feel awesome and am back on the treadmill!
Lately I've had these little milestones(big for me) as far as fitness goes. One When I run I go over 2 miles and stay at an even 11 min mile pace. I notice my endurance getting so much better which is awesome. I know it's nothing amazing but for me its pretty good haha. Also something weak but I'm so excited about! I can do 10 man push ups!! Haha I used to do like half of one, as in I slowly lowered down, and couldn't get back up haha. Now I can do 10 pretty fast in a row!
Does anyone else have or had problems with shin splints? How are your fitness goals going?
