    Good job!

    Iceman's a quick pace. I could probably run 7:15 minute miles for 3 miles max. I think I can do about 7:30 for up to 5 miles or so. Then it gets a lot slower.

    Under 7 is real fast in my book ... I feel like I'm at a wall with that pace. I've had a hard time getting below 7:30 for consecutive miles.

    With all this hype about running I decide instead of just walking every night I would add in some running. The only draw back is now I think I am getting shin splints!

    Start a Couch to 5k program, gets you into running gently mixing walking and running. Helps stave off injuries from running too much too soon. You can even find C25K apps for your phone.
    Whatever hits the fan will not be distributed evenly.

    I remember during my college days when, without training, I could run a 7:00 mile no problem (used to do the required ROTC 1.5 mile run in just over 10:00). Now I'd be lucky to keep a running pace for that distance...

    Shin splints suck. I find that strengthening the muscles and connective tissues on the front of your shins helps prevent them. I have successfully used a good exercise for this at night, when getting in bed.
    Lie on your stomach and hang your feet just over the end of the bed. Curl your feet toward you using the mattress as resistance and release. Do two reps of 50. You will feel the burn in the narrow long muscle that runs along the outer edge of your shin (aka tibialis anterior). Strengthening this muscle and its associated connective tissues help stabilize them and the tibia bone thus reducing the occurrence of shin splints.

    Thanks! Will try this.

    I downloaded a C25K app a month ago or so, but that's as far as I got.
