    I just cant run on pavement any more.
    Am I being a pussy or is this just naturally aging shit?
    I'm 23 years old...5'8.. 170.. ~13-14% BF

    Heres why I made this thread:

    Last week I did 1hr cardio / 4 days in the Gym - drove to the gym
    No pain when running

    Yesterday I ran to the gym and did cardio in the gym

    Today i drove to gym and tried to run on treadmill.. and.. i was in some 7/10 pain. What the fuck?! Did the concrete/pavement do that much damage yesterday? For clarification, its just pain in my legs/joints/shin

    Whats F&N's take on this. Do i need to just run treadmill / track / beach from now on?

    By the way, i've googled this and whatnot, and i know the general consensus is that Pavement is hard on your legs/joints and so forth.

    Either way, i'm curious your thoughts on it. I've never had this issue running on pavement before.. i mean slowly it has been more and more painful.. but is there something i can do?

    When you run watch your stride, if your feet overly abduct or adduct stretch your hips until your stride corrects back to straight forward.

    I prefer running on harder surfaces road/pavement compared to grass to be honest :dunno:

    One thing that made a big difference to me though was finding out I had flat feet and wearing orthotics, knees don't ache anywhere near as much as they used to.

    maybe your shoes were a factor? did you wear a different pair when you hit the treadmill? maybe you need to strengthen your stabilizers in your feet (from barefoot running) :dunno:

    after many months without exercising, i went for a jog (in nike free 5.0s) and my shins were in pain... i started running barefoot around a local high school track and i felt a lot of the pain/stress was relieved.
