Going to give it my best

Recommended Posts

Guest Jill

Just started the program today... I've ever been a runner and suffer from exercise enduced asthma so I've been very nervous to start it.

 

Thankfully so far my asthma isn't giving me too many problems, and I was actually able to complete the first day (which surprised me!) but I am having pain from shin splints. Is there anything people can recommend to help alleviate this? I'm trying to stretch it out and ice it after so hopefully that will help but any advice is appreciated.

Wanting to get my health under control (I have weak ankles and knee/lower back problems) and need to get my weight under control so hopefully this will eventually help!

Jill, we have so much in common.  I, too, am a Jill and I suffer from asthma and it's kind of scary when it comes to running.  I always run with my inhaler first and foremost just in case.  I have found that controlling my breathing has made a difference in my asthma while running as well as while resting.  I breathe deeply from the belly in for three footfalls and out for two.  As my speed increases and I have the need to breathe faster, it's in for two and out for one.  Also, I had a really hard time with shin splints when I first started out.  A great stretch that I found for shin splints is to stand on the edge of a step and stretch those ankle/lower calf muscles by keeping your toes and the ball of your foot on the step and bringing your heel down below the step and then back up on your toes.  Do this stretch before and after working out and it should increase the strength in those muscles and gradually the shin splints will go away.  Until that time, when you have them, take a rolling pin and massage those muscles and ice them.  It's painful and aggravating, but eventually they do go away (or at least they have for me).  I have also found that the more I progress in the program and the stronger I become, my knees, ankles, and lower back pain is decreasing.  The stronger you get, the easier it gets!  Stay positive and motivated and happy running!  :)
