I just purchased a treadmill and my long term goal is to do a half marathon in May. I have not been working out, though I think I am decent shape. I have two questions, what sort of exercises can I do to prevent shin splints, and what is the best way to get started... should I run at a fast pace (for me that is about 4.5-5mph) for as long as I can, or alternate between walk/jog/run for more distance. I can do 2 miles alternating between walk/jog/run. I am just wondering how to build up my speed and distance, does that just come with time? Thanks!
