I put old painful 50 yr old knees totin 6' 223lbs to the test today - 55 minutes of cardio, soaking wet, with a mile just under 11 minutes during the workout which is monumental for my roughed up worn out frame... Knees are really aching right now - hit it pretty hard yesterday as well.

Is there a decent stretch that will help with the muscles on the side of my shin bone?? Even running a little 4 yrs ago I had pretty decent pain there - noticed today along with the knee pain \:\(

Pain is NOT my friend \:\)

Listen PeePaw, you keep overdoing it like that, you'll be in a world of hurt ;\) Ice baths will really help you.

Here are the stretches I do for the outside of my leg:

1) Stand up, cross one leg over the other, and reach for your toes. Switch legs.
2) Sitting down with one leg outstretched and your other foot tucked behind you, reach towards your outstretched foot. Lean and roll around a bit to feel it stretch various points of your outstretched leg.
3) Spend a lot of time doing calf exercises. Standing on your tiptoes will help stretch that muscle. Roll your ankle around to stretch out more.

PeePaw \:D

I was expecting to be pretty dang sore this morning but am not really, however there's definitely some soreness in the shin area. Ole PeePaw will give those stretches a try and see what happens ;\)

The first 15 seconds are.....you won't feel much after that.

Fill the tub with 6" of cold tap water. Jump in & sit down while dropping a bag of ice between your knees.

It'll really help with the pain & inflammation.

Kimber,
I know you're a P90X fan -- the shin stretches and ankle rotations that they do at the end of the X-stretch video really help with my shins after running. I also think that upward dog helps out too.

Added some stretches today - 2 miles running!!! Shins are sore.....we'll see what happens. It's been nearly 2 yrs since Ive done any running - and have run off/on 4 days in a row this week!!

I'm going to hit the mountain bike this weekend and just ride the country and field roads a little - give the shins a rest.

My BIGGEST issue this week....the more cardio Ive done, the hungrier I've been \:\( Got to overcome that one!

You have to keep that old body of yours fueled \:D

Check out the Sports Tracker app for your phone. It inputs your weight and uses your speed to determine the calories burned. It really helps you keep track of your calories.

PeePaw ( \:D ) has logged an amazing 10+ miles this week \:\)

While only 2 days movement for most it was an accomplishment for me I can assure you.

Problems to date:

1) STUPID hungry all the time!
2) Have been skipping weekend workout but am going to push my sorry butt to get there Saturday and Sunday if ONLY for 20 mins cardio OR ride the mountain bike
3) HATE the thought of the ice-bath however, my hip joints hurt, my shins hurt, knees hurt and crapped up right shoulder hurts SO I plan to try the ice bath thing. (tried ice packs on the knees 2 nights and it really seemed to help!)

At this point, I am going to HAVE to seek out a medicinal (whether natural or not) form of appetite suppressant. I've got to gain control there - too much other stuff is being done right for me to allow my furnace to constantly be hollering "More Coal - More Coal" \:\) ANY suggestions??
