    Shin splints are usually caused by overuse. Too many miles or too much hard running, over and above what your body can handle. A lot of athletes come off their offseason all geared up and ready to put in the big training volume , but haven't conditioned their joints/muscles to adapt to the new stress. My advice would be to reduce running volume by 50% and keep it all easy.

    In my opinion, it's okay to run through minor pain, as it maintains strength in the supporting muscles and keeps oxygen going to the areas where the inflammation (your bodies natural method of healing itself) exists. However, as I said, I would cut training volume in half and also try to only run every 2nd or 3rd day. Once feeling better, try to ease (very slowly) back into normal training mileage. Of course if the pn is so bad you can hardly make it down the block or through a few minutes of warm-up then definitely stop running and see a specialist. If it's manageable, and you can quiet the ego and be honest with yourself, go ahead and try to run through it. In some cases the pain may ease up once you're warmed up.

    me!

    maybe your stride is the problem; make sure you are not over-reaching when running. Something that it worked for me was shorten my stride and increase my cadence.

    good luck

    Definetly starting to know why they call the disney dopey challenge. Omg doing a 5k and 10k isn't bad but then a half and a full marathon on day four. Ugh..... And days of walking around Disney world. Just got the full marathon left now and feel Ok as of right now. Last three days I've clocked in almost 80k steps each day. And its hard to eat right without a stove for cooking to. Damn brutal almost feel like every part of my body is KT taped lol

    But just a quick update, finished the dopey challenge yesterday had to slow my roll by quite a bit, average pace per runkeeper was just abit over 10 min miles. That's even with stopping to get pictures with characters. I was just hoping to finish tbh, its odd to say but that half the day before really took a toll on the body.

    The goofy one is probably my favorite out of all of them since its the 10 year anniversary medal and its a spinner. I would say each one is like 4 to 5 inches across fairly good size Bling.

    Missed what that challenge was? Was it 5k, 10k, half marathon, full marathon on consecutive days? Congrats on completing it!

    Ive been running so little recently, too much work to do for exams, planning on a proper run on Thursday once I've got a week before the next exam

    Got a quick question on shoes that maybe someone else shares the same problem I have. I've noticed that on ALL my running shoes I get a hole where my pinky toe is, sometimes on the big toe as well. Anybody know what causes this? Small toe box in need of a 2E or 4E width ? Or maybe im running wrong ?

    Runner checking in. Currently maintaining on the treadmill which I'm not a big fan of, but will continue until it warms up from the single digits and low teens.

    Sorry if this sounds melodramatic. But sometimes when I run, I start feeling very lost. And I begin questioning the reasons behind my running habit. What's the purpose behind it? Am I doomed to just run further and further?
    Does anyone else experience the same thing? How did you deal with it? What is the reason behind this sudden onset of depression and anxiety?

    In for answers, I find I get this a bit, usually when running the same route in the city. Try running new routes? I never get it back home running through nice parks etc. But interested if anyone has any other answers, the closest nice park to where I live now is around 5 miles!

    Also shoes, does anyone have any recommendations for minimal shoes, not much heel-toe drop and not much, but a small amount of padding? Currently wear inov8 road x-treme which are about the padding I want, but the heel slips slightly and I need another pair for rotation. The cheaper the better, whenever I go into running shops they all seem to cost 80-100 which just seems ridiculous for a minimal shoe!

    “The keys to life are running and reading. When you're running, there's a little person that talks to you and says, "Oh I'm tired. My lung's about to pop. I'm so hurt. There's no way I can possibly continue." You want to quit. If you learn how to defeat that person when you're running, you will know how to not quit when things get hard in your life. For reading: there have been gazillions of people that have lived before all of us. There's no new problem you could have--with your parents, with school, with a bully. There's no new problem that someone hasn't already had and written about it in a book.”

    could just be the shoe material itself since most running shoes are made to be light... or it could mean you need to clip your pinky toe-nail

    i get that feeling in the beginning of the run and some times before running later in the day - do you run solo? do you have others that you train with? perhaps there's a correlation because i'm really the only person that's "fit" within my circle of friends...

    well it depends on where you live in america but mostly yes, if you dont live near a park/track, it's pavement all the way lol

    That's all well and good until you break your femur three times.

    Sometimes when you think you're hurt and should stop, you're hurt and should f*cking stop.

    Take a few days off. No one made a law saying you have to run. Many fit people don't run. Do something else and regroup.

    Completely agree, I think one of the most important things a lifter/runner can do is develop that sixth sense of knowing when something is 'bad' pain and 'good' pain. Got the stress fractures to prove it

    By the way, getting into running lately and my left foot arch is a lot weaker compared with my right, can feel it start to collapse mid-run causing me to stop running cos of pain due to messed up form. Anyone can advise on how to strengthen foot strength?

    Do you get blisters or find your feet shift a bit at the start of the run?
    The side of my shoes' uppers are usually the first to go, and I think that's the norm for most.. maybe the others can chime in

    lol thanks for the laugh bro, inspired me to load up a podcast this morning and just chill out with dj and his sidekick's antics. had one of the best runs for the week, felt refreshed!

    http://tmagazine.blogs.nytimes.com/2...nterview/?_r=1
    I’m curious about your experience of time. Do you feel like life is moving really quickly? Is your music one way to sort of turn it over and reflect on it?

    WILLOW: I mean, time for me, I can make it go slow or fast, however I please, and that’s how I know it doesn’t exist.

    JADEN: It’s proven that how time moves for you depends on where you are in the universe. It’s relative to beings and other places. But on the level of being here on earth, if you are aware in a moment, one second can last a year. And if you are unaware, your whole childhood, your whole life can pass by in six seconds. But it’s also such a thing that you can get lost in.

    WILLOW: Because living.
    You can't get much done in life if you only work on the days when you feel good.

    For me it's not when I am running but before I go. That's why I have so much more success going early in the day. If I plan a run in the afternoon 9 times out of 10, I'll talk myself out of it.
    Sometimes I feel like I have to just maintain weight. I get exactly where you are coming from.

    When I do get going after the first mile or so, I feel amazing
