Last week I walked around 3.5 miles every evening after work with the puppy.
I am a Childminder so I walk a lot during the day anyway, but I need to start getting fitter and lose some of this excess baggage!
I went out and did a run today, I last went out two nights ago and was speed walking, doing 3.5 miles in 50 minutes. Today I decided why not.. Let's jog... Oh my Lord I got shinsplints and it's still hurting now I was jogging for two mins and then walking two mins at intervals but half way through I couldn't even speed walk back..
I was wondering if my weird knees had anything to do with it. Basically they point inwards when my feet are straight, a personal trainer once told me it's because my glute muscles are so weak that my knee points inwards but once it gets strengthened it should pull my knee in line? Basically it really hurts and "stretches" when I try to walk with my feet pointing forward they kind of go into a 10 to 2 position (on a clock) and in that position my knees are straight pointing forward.
Has anyone had this before and will this go away? Any advice for shinsplints it really hurts and is putting me off running.. Thanks!
