Hi all, I have been skulking for a while and decided to finally post! I was a keen runner last year, got to about 7k 3 times a week before I was struck down with shin splints...may actually have been a stress fracture as I couldn't run for 6 months. Recently started back up on C25k and unfortunately they came back - took a week off last week and used Greg's post from years ago as my bible, lots of stretching and swimming! I am starting back on week 4, completed r1 and shins were a little sore post-run but not terrible. Hoping the next run will be better!
So lovely to read the encouragement and advice on this forum. Wish I had had it last year - took me a good month to enjoy running at all! Keep on keeping on!
