As a new runner and 50 this year I finished w5r2 last night and was feeling great. I have had pain in my shin for the last couple of runs but it didn't seem to last long so I didn't take much notice. Last night it was worse and still hurts today. My daughter spoke of shin splints so I have read up and see I might have to take a 2 -4 week break! I have a 5k run in September so I know I have plenty of time to get to the end of the programme. I am just worried I might lose my motivation and walk it instead. It's only the one leg as well, is that normal? Advice please!!
