Graduated on Christmas Day and have been in a lot of pain since. I've had shin problems since I started running, in my left leg only. Since then I've been really in pain with what I now think are shin splints (not totally sure but hard to even walk)
Anyway two days ago I decided to try a gentle run/walk and went back to wk 5 run 1. Managed it ok but was still hurting the next day. Not much worse than before but manageable. Today I've been out again and done week 6 run 1 so that's 18 mins of running. Not feeling too bad. The tester will be tomorrow morning.
I just hope as I get a bit stronger I can start to increase again. I'm really at a loss as to what I can do to help this silly left leg. I have to be very careful as my livelihood depends on my being able to walk well as I have a dog walking business Keeping everything crossed because I'm crazily busy this week and will probably walk about 80km between now and Friday. Wish me luck!!
I want more than anything to be able to run pain free. Am going to search out some shin splint exercizes. If anyone has any advice please help if you can. Thank you.
Hope you are all well and have had a lovely weekend
