Just started doing that a couple of weeks ago, so going through some learning. I'm at 138-142 while running which is about 80% MHR and just between aerobic and anaerobic. Burning plenty of calories, about 700-750 per run according to my watch, but most probably not burning a lot of fat. Resting rate is 50.

Any tips or suggestions on how to stop shin splints or prevent them? :cry:

I run streets, tracks and parkways with very comfortable New Balance shoes.

I prevented mine by walking instead of running!

I have been told you can strengthen the muscles to prevent it but it did not work for me. Maybe I was not dedicated enough. :duh:

Lots of calcium and protein, and try running downhill and stretching the anterior shin.

When you run don't stomp you feet. It is expecially hard when you get tired. Strech. There are some resistance training techniques that work too.

I have a running addiction also. I have been running minimum of 2 miles every day for the past 533 day. Usually have long runs twice a week of 10 or more miles. I have run a few ultra races with my longest so far being a 40 miler last year (8hrs35mins) and 3 other 50k run (fastest was 5hrs15mins). I'm not sure what this year will bring since I have started to run in Vibram Fivefinger shoes. trying to go minimal shoe is an adjustment but WELL worth it. Turning 40 :( this year is making me think of a 50 miler maybe. :/
Most miles are on the road but I love the trail.

Bellvis, Five Fingers are a good way to help with shine splints. www.birthdayshoes.com will get you a little info on them. We don't need shoes to support our feet or body, we just need to remember how to run the way we're meant too. The feet can support them selves which can really reduce the impact on the rest of the body.

A better thread may be the question... What is the difference between a runner and a jogger?

Well, I am not either one, but I have aspirations of being getting my ass out of bed and getting in a quick run before work. Problem is that means waking up at 5am and with a new born in the house that aint hapenning for a while. I put on a quick 20 pounds while the wife was pregnant, so I need to drop that and loose some of my beer belly. I am 37 and this has to be the worst condition I have ever ben in in my entire life. This thread has got me thinking about getting off my ass.

Quick note on the shin splints, When they start to bother me and I have had them really bad at times, I will do 100 toe taps with each foot before I run and I have not really had a problem since. I just leave my heal on the ground and tap the toe and it works the muscles that bothered me.

I have been running for the last 2 seasons and have started and completed the Chicago Marathon the last 2 years. I did it for the first time as a challenge to myself after having brain surgery. I am now a few months short of 38 years old and am registered to run my 3rd marathon. I will have an 18 week training plan that I will start in June, until then I will run 3-5 miles a day 4-5 days a week. When I first started running, I could barely make it around the block without feeling like I would die. Now I feel confident that after building a mileage base, I could pretty easily run for 3-4 hours without much trouble. The biggest thing for me was getting a really good pair of shoes that where fitted for me. In Chicago we have a store called Fleet Feet and when you go there to get shoes, they analyze how you walk and run and fit you for a shoe specific to your running style. The other thing that I will not run any type of distances without is body glide. Without it, I am in major pain after 30 minutes or so of running. The last thing are good socks and clothes that are not cotton. You would be amazed at the difference they make.

you ran Chicago when the heat was so bad they shut it down then right? That was a brutal hot day, I ran a 50k that day and it was horribly HOT as :evil: !

Good luck on your training and post your experience when you're done. Glad to hear your running after surgery and making the most out of life. I'm sure with brain surgery you might as well say a second chance.

They stopped the race for people that were behind a certain pace in 2007. It was incredibly hot that day. I ran it in 2008 and 2009. 08 was still pretty warm (in the 80's if I recall), but last year was perfect. It was in the mid 30's at the start. I just had a follow up with my surgeon a coupld of weeks ago (4 years since my surgery) and it felt so good to give him the pictures of me at the finish.

Here is my finish picture:

Here is a pic right after my surgery:
