  1. Use the link I posted above. There's a lot of resources there.
  2. Yup. I've already done that as well. I also have the supports, so I'm good there. It is actually the form, that I'm asking about. I have never been taught what "good form" is, so if you have any videos or sites that explain it, I'm all eyes and ears.
  3. As a bigger person myself, I like the Brooks Beast. It has a wider size and great support. Check my link above for where I get mine, but also check Amazon before you pull the trigger because sometimes it is cheaper there.
  4. I do a combination of running and walking. I walk at a quick pace to get my heart rate up and then jog for as long as I can and then back to walking. And repeat as I catch my breath. My real concern is with my stride and foot impact. I'm not sure if I'm using the proper technique at all, which is why I'm asking for technique advice.
  5. I've been an on again off again walker for about a year now, but the doc says I need to make it an everyday thing. The only time I can find to get in the exercise is first thing in the morning as soon as I wake up. I've been trying to add more running to my walking to ease into it, but I find it to not be enjoyable. I'm overweight and I've never been a runner, so I'm sure my technique is completely wrong. I do have comfortable shoes--Brooks Beasts--and they provide excellent support, but I still get some shin pain. I don't believe these are splints, but I'm not sure. Does anyone have advice/sites for helping me use the proper running technique? I know I need to ease into it so I've been doing intervals as best as I am able, but I really want to get up to speed (no pun intended) as quickly as possible so that I can get more benefit out of my morning walks/runs.
  6. I run in Brooks Beasts. I've got a wide foot, and I'm running to lose weight so these shoes work perfectly for me. I've found the best deals at http://www.runningwarehouse.com/ although Amazon has been competitive a couple times, so I would check both before buying.
