I'm new to the site and new to running. I'm really enjoying in and I run with a little group. We are all beginners so it's fab! I'm on week 5 and have just completed session. 2. In the start I experienced pain in my right shin which I thought could be shin splints. After week 3 I thought I'd check out to see If I was wearing the right footwear- I wasn't!!!!! I now have running trainers and they made such a difference. However after last nights session ( 2 sets of 8mins) my right leg was so painful particularly my shin area. I put ice on it when i got home- and it helped but has anyone got any advice or suggestions? I'm loving the running and I'm actually looking forward to my session tomorrow but I know it will hurt . I hope someone will offer some advice!!! X
