It's a nice little two hour work out, with my time divided between the bike, treadmill, elliptical, and stepper.
I recently noticed some shin discomfort while on the treadmill. I dropped the incline level a bit. It helped, a little. I also broke up my 30 minute brisk treadmill session in to 15 minute spurts, and I used another machine in between. Again, it helped, a little.
The next step, pardon the pun, was a change in footwear. My general purpose Reeboks just weren't getting it done. I looked for running shoes in a few stores. I couldn't find anything I liked in my price and style range.
My shins were hurting and I got tired of shopping. I finally went to a big box sporting goods store and told the kid in the shoe department that I wanted an inexpensive shoe, and one without neon colors. My options were severely limited. "Severely" is an understatment. The shoe kid suggested a black and grey model from Nike, and they were on sale. Done.
I took the shoes to the gym Friday morning. It helped, a little.
