I can't seem to lose the weight and I am doing everything I need to do except getting enough cardio in. I am going to try to get my cardio in whehhhhhh..... Dont feel sorry for me when I say this but help me to get angry and encourage me to go forward. Twice a week I was kayaking and run/walking every morning. I did get a shin splint so I gave my running a break and focused on my walking. I loved the time I was running. My kayak instructor decided he was going to do me a favor and send me to a physical therapist for an evaluation. This physical therapist told me what he did at his office and of course I know what physical therapist did and then he told me I was not built right to run; that I shouldn't be running. I told him I really enjoy running. He said I don't know how someone built like you could possibly enjoy running. I did have a shin splint that needed resting. I listened to that a$$ hole and quit running. Enough I say Enough of letting others get in your head! I enjoyed running and now my cardio has taken a hit from this. Enough. Everything I had gotten to in my running I need to start over again but Enough listening to others . I needed to run. I use to be a runner for 15 years I was a runner and in my youth I was fast. I am done listening to people tell me that I can't do things that I know my body can.

    No one knows your body more than you. Give it proper nourishment and rest to heal properly and always listen to what it says. Eventually you'll be doing what you love. Best wishes. emoticon

    Everyone, even physical therapists, doctors, friends, relatives, etc. all have different opinions on issues. I say it's what makes the world go around. I would do what make you happy and if running is something you enjoy, then do it. By all means give your shins a rest and time to heal but get right back on the running wagon if that's what makes you happy. How dare anyone insult you by stating "anyone built like that shouldn't run". Listen to your body and not opinions of those who may bring you down. Sounds like you have a great plan in action! Keep up the great work!
