Fast food swaps

I need to memorize this list from Women’s Running magazine so I can make better choices on the road. I’m not loading up on Whoppers, large fries and a chocolate shake (OK, now I’m hungry), but my decisions could use a little help.

Shin, ouch, splints

For many years, I tried to pick up running only to be sidelined immediately by shin splints. Just typing out the words makes me wince.

Sure wish I would have had some running friends back then to give me tips on how to avoid and treat shin splints like those in this Women’s Running piece. Who knows, maybe I would have stuck with it for more than a day or two.

How about you; did you find any great articles this week?

My name is Gisgie. It's pronounced geese (like the birds) and gee (like the letter). Now that we've met, I'm glad you're here. I'm an injury-prone runner who manages to find reasons to keep coming back to the road despite ongoing challenges. Most recently, I've struggled with piriformis syndrome. I'm currently winning. Most days.
