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.
