Went to the doctor and I am over weight and I have high blood pressure at the age of 21. I am 6'1 and weigh 195 pounds. I have 8 weeks before my next appointment. I can't really lift weights due to another problem at the time but may be able to in the future. So for the first time in about 10 years I am thinking about running. So what are some cheap shoes I can get for running and how far do I need to run? Also are their any considerations I need to take with my high blood pressure when running?
