Just a quick question - do you stretch after you run?

That's the only thing that seems to help for me - if I remember to stretch, then it's not quite as bad the next time than if I forgot to stretch.
I did take a break from all jogging/jumping activities for a full week, but since it did not seem like the achy stiff ankles/shins in the mornings are getting any better, I just resumed jogging instead. Kind of used to it now... hoping it will be better once I weigh less.

look on spark people articles for shin splints. Usually it is a sign you need to slow down. Hopefully that will help!

The only obstacle I am running into with my running is that my shins are so stiff when I run that they get very uncomfortable. I can't call it pain but it was certainly affecting my running tonight. It seems to be the only uncomfortable feeling that I get. Other parts get tired and sore towards the end which is what i would expect. I do stretch before I run and walk for 2-5 minutes before to warm up. I do live in a "hilly" area. Anyone have advice?
