Now that the UN is finished and the new fiscal year is upon us does anyone have any insight to the pace picking back up. Is there any positive information in regards to classes, etc. Just a little eager.

I ran a full marathon about 4 years ago and my body is still sore I don't think my knees will ever forgive me.

I got rid of them by doing a LOT of stretching, ice rubs, Vitamin M, and...wait for it...rest. My ortho told me to not do any running for 4-5 weeks, and to do the eliptical or bike instead. He also suggested that I avoid putting more weight than necessary on the ball of my foot by changing my running stride to make the heel take more of the load.
I've been shin splint free for 3-4 years now. I probably just jinxed myself by saying that...but my ortho said the alternatives were to ignore him and get a stress fracture and/or separate my muscles from the shin bone

I admire you marathon runners. I had a 1st Sgt. that never saw a marthon he didn't want to run in. Me? I can crank out my 3 mile PFT in the 18:30-20:00 range, but I never run more than 5 miles.
If you wanna talk distance, my 6'5" frame is hell on wheels doing forced marches. I've humped from here to places that you can't get to from here. Running? I could probably hump a marathon with a ruck on, but I'm not about to run it. Blah.

I use to get shin splints, especially after I stopped working out, and started back playing basketball fullcourt for like 3 hours straight, my shins use to kill me. The best way to get rid of the shin splints is to keep pushing yourself through the pain. Eventually your shin will adapt to the pressure that is being put on them and it will no longer hurt. I mean my splints were so bad that I couldnt sleep at night, they would hurt just that bad after a day on the court.

Got a call today, my initial interview is next Wednesday. I'm locking myself in my bedroom until then, and telling my children that they have to wear masks at home until after the interview so as to not share their germs from school with me again.
