Today I completed W9Run3 and one thing I have to say is that I hated every bit of it ! From about week 3 my calves have been killing me while running but from about week 7 or 8 the pain in my shins is not fun at all. Have only just managed to hobble the 5 min warm down ( although that has got a bit better during week 9). The next day I am in pain all down my shins and in fact for week 9 I had to take 2 days rest between each of the runs.
Running is clearly not for me.... or I am doing it all wrong. My girlfriend has recently graduated with no pain at all !! Lucky girl !
Need to see if there is a bike equivalent or at least go back to about week 5 and start again ( after my shins recover).
