    Kamille got a reaction from owl in C25K on my elliptical   
    Week 1 day 2
    Yesterday I did  day 2 of week 1 on my elliptical. First I didn't want to do it because I'm not a very sportive person but I am glad that I did it. I want to finish this program on my elliptical. Maybe when I lose some weight and my body is in better shape I will going to like sport but for now it's still difficult. I feel like I have no energy. But I will finish it. And I'm trying to eat as healthy as possible. 
    Well tomorrow I will do day 3.

    Good for you, JaneX, for doing it. 
    I concur that you may need to warm up better. The c25k app has us walking for 5 minutes as a warm-up. If you've been doing that, perhaps you need to walk a little longer (and/or slower) or do some mild stretches, as stretching cold muscles is not necessarily a good thing. (I'm not disagreeing with the previous poster, by the way. I think they are right.)
    I have also heard that more supportive shoes can help. I don't have experience with that, though, because I wear minimalist shoes, which is essentially like going barefoot except you're protected from the heat and the cold of the ground.
    This may or may not be a factor, but perhaps you could use calcium or magnesium supplements? I know they help muscle cramps, but I don't know about shin splints.
    Also, one thing I've noticed for me is that I'm more liable to get shin splints if I'm walking uphill, even if the grade is very low. In other words it may not look like I'm going uphill but I am a little. Totally flat terrain or going downhill doesn't ever seem to do that with me.

    Welcome aboard! I just finished week 2 after repeating week 1. Tomorrow I'll start week 3 and see how it goes. If need be, I'll go back and repeat week 2. I really want to be successful! Good luck to both of you and let me know how it's going

    I'm not using one, but I have used an elliptical before and I think it's great for someone who has knee problems.
    I have a knee that likes to give me problems and I've discovered that running is actually strengthening it.
    The great thing about "running" on an elliptical (or treadmill) is that if you get tired and want to stop, you don't have to walk all the way back home.

    Hello. My name is Kamille and I'm 51 years old. I have to lose 20 kilo for my health. I've a lot of health problems. I'm going to do this program on my elliptical because I don't like to run outside and I have problems with my knees. I know that it will not have the same effect as that I would run outside but that doesn't matter to me. I want to become healthier and want to build up my condition. Are there more people here who are using this app on the elliptical?
