having just this morning finished W1 R3, I'm feeling a bit achey in my shins. There has been a little bit of an ache after the other runs this week, but I've been putting it down to the new exercise regime.
I bought some new running shoes a couple of weeks ago from Sports Direct, before I found this forum and discovered there are different types and gaits, they're a pair of Nike Downshifters. First and only pair I tried on, they felt ok so they'll do me I thought.
Having done a bit of searching on here, I'm wondering if it would be worth my while to try and find a running shop and find out if they're right for my gait or, if they're not, get some that are.
Obviously I don't really want to take time out from my new hobby and lose my momentum. I do worry that if I did I might not start again.
Or am I being a bit over anxious (having read about shin splints etc) and it is likely to just be the new-ness of running?
