Should I even do this?


Recommended Posts

I also have bad knees and used to get shin splints when I first started but am now on week 8. I'd say definitely try and just go super slow. Maybe jog at the same pace you walk but just do the jogging movement. And repeat any days you can't make it through. I struggled to get through a lot of days but my body is starting to surprise me by what I'm able to do. Good luck!!

I am not a runner but love to walk. I am on day 2 and today my knee hurts. Every step of running. Finished day 2 but don't want to hurt my knee so that I won't be able to go hiking! I understand what you are saying. One of my friends said to avoid shin splints, tap your foot about 20 times each. Not sure what to do about knee, but keep going even if you walk. Better than sitting on the couch! Hope you feel better
