I am trying to get back into running after a LONG break. I hate to run but it seems to work best for fat loss for me. A few running questions for this non runner:
I am 5 6" with short 28 inch inseam. I have been running in te past at 6.5 on the treadmill, but can only hold 6-6.2 for any length of time now. Are these far from what I should be shooting for?
Also, my shin splints have returned wwith a vengance. They are painful, as is the front of the leg muscluature.
And advice for me> My main goal is building muscle, but I really need to drop some fat, I do rotate from recumbant, elliptical, and track so as to not make my shin splints too bad.
Thanks for pointers.
