Hello, Got a bit of an issue I need help with. I should be going to selection early Jan '08 and I have been beasting myself for 2 to 3 hours every night because my BMI is still a bit too high (BMI 29.3) It's been going ok untill a couple of days ago as when I first start running I get what can only be described as cramp running up the front of my shins untill it becomes unbearable and have to stop so then I get on the rowing machine do a couple of kilometers on that do a few weights etc. It seems though once I'm thoroughly warmed up I can can run as normal and do a couple of miles no problem. I am doing stretches before I start but I'm obviously not stretching/warming up whatever muscle it is that runs up my shin. Can anyone tell me the best stretch to warm up that muscle? Help much appreciated. Jimmy.
