  1. Hi all, I'm Kate. I used to run 5+ miles a day, but I've been out of it for a while. I spent two years going through fertility treatments, then two ectopic pregnancies and a total of 4 surgeries which all caused me to gain about 30 lbs. I weighed 174 when I finally got pregnant and 242 when I had my rainbow baby in April. I was doing all right on weight gain until I developed diabetes and got put on insulin, then it kind of went out of control and I broke my ankle at 7 months pregnant so I wasn't able to exercise. I've been hovering around 207 lbs for months and cannot seem to lose weight no matter what. I eat a fairly clean diet, high protein, low carbs, lots of water, occasional cheat days. Just started running again about 2.5 weeks ago, found this app and then got sidelined with some horrible shin splints. So I'm not gonna lie, I'm pretty bummed out right now, but I'm really hoping to heal soon so I can get back at it. My goal is to get back down to 145 lbs, though I'll settle for 160 or less at this point!
  2. Does anyone have any tips and running with Shin splints? I got hit with them badly in the middle of week two. Took a few days rest, went out Thanksgiving night for a run and didn't even make it 5 minutes before I was in so much pain I could barely hobble, had to call my husband to come get me and the dog. It's been 5 days of rest, icing twice daily, Epsom salt wraps, and foam rolling and I'm still having trouble walking. I was told to wrap my legs from ankle to knee to bind the tendons and prevent pain but I don't think I'm doing it right. I miss running, I used to run 5+ miles a day, it was my stress relief and I just got started back after a year and a half of be in out of it. I've never had shin splints before so I'm not sure what I'm doing wrong, I warmed up and stretched as I always had. I'm thinking maybe it's the extra weight I'm carrying? Any suggestions for getting this healed and back on the trail again..... Not being able to run is really getting too me.
