I jog 3-5 times/week during lunch with coworkers. The pain will pass. Start slow and easy.

Good for you! Exercise is the best thing for a rut...and for the effects of beer on the midsection.

Just call me when you are going so I know to send the paramedics if you do not come back!

Only when chased, but I'm a tall guy and I hear that I'm intimidating. So that doesn't happen often.

I am *ahem* supposed to PT 3 times a week. I ran for the first time on Sun in about 3 months. I normally run between 1.5 - 3 miles depending on how I feel at that moment. I don't run for any kind of record breaking time or anything. I try to maintain a 7.5 - 8 min mile depending on the distance I run. For me, the best thing for next day pain is to stretch out really good and go for a real easy short distance jog for a mile or so, and then I am good to go. (Learned this from running track in High School in 1986) Only supplement I use is L-Glutamine.

I need to get back to running twice a week though. I am tall and skinny. 5' 11" and currently weigh 148. :D

i would run no longer than 15 minutes the first week or so using the hard easy system. run take a day off run, etc. then increse as you feel more comfortable. if you have to walk after awhile thats fine too. than start running again. just don't stop and start again.

Good info here, NavyDood. Any recommendations for shin splints? I get them after about 10 minutes of running and then after that its just a pain!

5'11" and 148? Wow. Are you a fairly skinny dood?

Definitely look into the shoe issue. The wrong shoes are a huge contributor to shin splints.

Try running more in the grass and on softer surfaces. I had them when I ran track in HS, the only real way to get rid of them is to take a while off.

and 5'11" 148 is pretty damn skinny...I'm 2 inches taller and 65 pounds heavier, but I can run 2.5 miles

I run on concrete regularly. It took about 18 months to toughen the legs up enough to run regularly on concrete. If you can't run on trails or grass, asphalt has more give than concrete. Also, shoes with good padding (gel, grid, air or whatever) may help.

I am middle aged, but no beer for me.

RX-GR8 - congratulation on starting to run. I used to run in H.S. and have tried getting back into running ever since. You have some great places to run near where you live - my favorite being the Cooper River parks. I went to Bishop Eustace, so I used to run it all the time. In fact, I went there with my wife around a month ago to run.

H.S. I was 5'10" - 125 lbs.
Now - same height - 60 lbs. heavier.

Man I got to start running again.

Shin splints cure is to do toe raises, not heel raises. Look here http://www.mothernature.com/Library/...ooks/43/24.cfm
