i am really beginning to walk!
i really like it!
don't get me wrong, i am not walking 10k
a day, nor am i running
, but i AM walking more than i have in a very long time, and i am being consistent!
i am doing between 10,000-15,000 steps a day, this fitbit friend thing is really working for me! thank you all who are pushing me.
thing is, i am beginning to get shin splints.
nothing horrible...yet, but i don't want them to get worse, yet i want to keep walking, any suggestions?
i guess i need new shoes (but i have a very tight budget!) any kind that you all suggest, or like?
i mostly walk on a gravel road, although, i do a little pavement, and some indoor walking.
second, to deal with the current problem of wanting to walk, what do i need to do? any stretching you can recommend?
warm/cold compresses? does ibprofen work?
any and all advice would be appreciated, and i would be so very grateful.
i really am getting into a groove, and i would hate for this to slow me down, thanks all... and keep stepping!
