i have spent many years as an unhealthy overweight guy and am doing something about it.
i was weighing in at about 20 stone, am now a fraction under 16 but will get to 12 eventually. until i was about 19 i was very active, now at 29 i am fine with very long walks etc but my first run last night was a bit of a chore! i walked for about an hour and broke it up with 3 brisk jogs, each about 3-5 mins on tarmac/concrete which is the only option really here.
my shins started to ache and have done overnight and all through today. i know this is common, but could do with any advice of how to reduce it. there are no running specialist shops nearby that i know of, can anyone reccommend any trainers that are good at helping reduce this or any other tips? thanks
