  • Great information. I've used walking as my primary workout for much of my weight loss journey because we've been out of town. I'm now ready to include some jogging and this info will help me transition safely - 9/29/2016 8:13:42 PM
  • Since my ankle reconstruction and hardware within, presence of mind calls attention to the placement of that foot so roll-over dose not occur. Lately,I've noticed a tendency for a roll-over, then I can feel the pin placement in that ankle. Therefor I'm not one for running. - 8/29/2016 6:44:39 PM
  • Great article! What I thought was just a few muscle pulls was Shin splints that once treated correctly were relieved! - 10/14/2015 3:43:20 PM
  • By following the recommendations of always warming up, never increasing distance or elevation too fast, always stretching afterwards and wearing shoes appropriate for your type of feet and stride, even someone with flat, over-pronating feet like me can run comfortably for decades.

    Good article. - 4/27/2015 10:11:13 AM
  • I have suffered from IBT for YEARS but until I read this I wasn't sure what it was called. My hip pops and cracks shortly after I start fitness walking and sometimes it gets quite sore. It's loud enough that my DH can hear it. Ouch!

  • I have Plantar Fasciitis plus Neuropathy! For the Plantar Fasciitis I went through about 15 physical therapy sessions, stretching, soaking, etc. None of these helped much until I got Orthotic inserts! Big difference!!! - 8/27/2014 11:33:37 AM

    I just started one of the Sparks programs, 5 weeks to a 5 K. I am taking my dog out on the walk/run program. I feel guilty if I leave him behind. - 12/22/2013 6:19:37 PM
  • I just started jogging. I think I'll rest tomorrow and just lift weights. I do ice and take iboprofen. - 8/26/2013 8:20:15 PM
  • Right now I have three of the five injuries and I don't run - I got them from issues I have with arthritis and just plain walking!
    Coach Nicole has a video using the foam roller for a releasing the tightness of ITB - very helpful but hurts like heck! - 8/26/2013 3:31:19 PM
  • I started running and was fine until after my first 5K. After the run, I moved my knee wrong, and felt a sharp pain in my knee and hip. It lasted a couple of hours, and my knee was very tender after it. I let my leg heal for a few weeks and after I stopped feeling any pain I tried running again, and sure enough the pain came back. So I gave up running. But every now and again my knee will hurt. So I asked my Dr and the response was, "Yeah that happens to everyone who runs. I suggest you try other activities." (which was not at all helpful) - 8/26/2013 1:09:20 PM
