I walked yesterday and today and now my pain is through the roof. My sheens hurt,ankles,thighs....etc. Brain Fog is bad too. This is very discouraging. I wish that my body would not react this way. I just have got to get in shape and lose some weight. I can't imagine what the pain is gonna be like tonight, night time is always the worse for me.

Hi Sheila, I'm sorry you are hurting. If you are just beginning to walk, it is important to
start out slowly and do some stretching before you go. You might of overdone. Shin splints
are painful and usually caused overdoing exercising those lower calf muscles. If you have
swelling, use some ice. Make sure you are wearing comfy shoes too, especially if you are
walking on concrete.

Walking is one of the best exercises, so don't be discouraged. Give your shins a rest and
get back out there. I walk just about daily and found it to really help me both physically and
mentally. You will surprise yourself how far you will gradually be able to go.

You might want to soak your achey muscle and do some gentle stretching and use some
ice on the shins if you do have swelling. You can do it!!!

I walk all the time and find that although I mau be hurting when I start out, I feel better as I go along. I have the hardest time when I haven't been able to walk in a few days. Take it easy and then give it another go?? Maybe less distance?? Good luck!! :) Hope you feel better!

If you have been sedentary for a while, you do have to start out slowly.  I could only walk four houses down and had to turn around and come back because of pain when I first started walking.  Then, each day, I went a little further.  Don't give up.  If you stop walking, you might reach a point where you CAN'T walk!  I'm sure you don't want that.  If you don't use it, you lose it.  So, keep on truckin'.  It will get easier as your muscles, tendons, and ligaments get used to the movement.

Sheila, you'll get there! Just start out slowly. I walk a lot but always stretch afterwards. If I don't stretch I get so stiff that it's hard to get moving again. Find some good stretches online or at the library. I really stretch my feet, legs and hips. Also, wear shoes with good support. I put extra gel pads in my shoes. Keep on moving, you will see improvement. You can do it!

Thanks everyone. Last night was pretty bad. I felt like I was in a fog and in pain. I walked this morning a little less than the other day. But I made it. I even did some light toning exercises. Now, I am so tired. Does the fatigue get any better?

Yes! At least for me it did. I used to have to lie down every afternoon, and since I walk almost every day now, I hardly ever do. I don't get that "can't keep my eyes open" feeling nearly as often, either.

Sheila, you deserve a big, gentle pat on the back!  You didn't give up.  Work into it and pretty soon you will be surprised how well you are doing.  I get more energy when I walk, too.  This should happen to  you as you keep moving and lose weight.  Keep on keeping on!

Sheila, Good for you!!! I'm glad you didn't give up. I agree with Sherrine, I know I feel
energized from walking. Remember, it is a gradual progression. You will feel better as you
build up more muscle and stamina. Keep up the good work, you will be glad you did!

Hi Sheila,

Congratulations on your determination to lose weight and get fit!! I know how easy it is to overdo it when you first get started. Three years ago, despite Fibro and a host of other problems, I walked a half marathon after only completing half my training and doing absolutely NO walking for the two weeks leading up to the marathon. I finished in 3hrs 30mins - a very good time for being 45 years old and dealing with Chronic Pain.

Flash forward to a year after that...I couldn't walk around the block without being in agony. I had gone downhill health-wise so much that I couldn't do anything. As I started to get back into fitness, I had a tendency to compare the current ME with the past ME - and I couldn't get it in my head that I wasn't in the same shape. I constantly pushed waaaaay past my limits and suffered for it endlessly. Once I finally accepted that things weren't going to be like they'd been before, I was able to start up again slowly...to walk for 5 minutes and then head home, then 10 minutes, then 15, etc.

I guess what I'm trying to say is that every tiny bit you do helps....but it's so, SO important to not push yourself past the comfort zone too much. You want to try a bit more each time you're out, but not so fast that you hurt yourself even more.

I've started AquaFit instead of walking and I'm loving it! I've changed my eating habits, I go to the pool 3 times a week and I do some Wii exercises at home plus play some of the games. My total weight loss since June of last year is 40lbs and I have about 15lbs to go.

Congratulations again for getting out there and working to regain your health! I wish you nothing but success!!

hugs,
Pam

I find swimming a little easier. On some days, it is so bad that I cant even do a full lap. My doctor suggested recently if I cant swim it due to my flare up then walk it in the water. Your body is lighter in water, so he has me working in water. I've had some nasty flare ups lately where it hurt so bad just to even stand and I had to manuever like I taught my patients how to get up in the nursing home, just to stand. After my swim/swimwalk I reward myself with the jacuzzi. I go to a gym, that I have membership in. I joined 24 hour fitness (nationwide) and only pay 24 a month.
