Hi I've just started running because I started a desk job 6 months ago with 10 hour days, and my activity went down the hypothetical toilet. So I took the plunge and decided that I will run at least every other day to try and build up my fitness again. This is literally from the couch to 5k for me!
Even with the slowest of slow paces and shortest of running intervals, I still feel great after I run/jog, so I don't want to stop. But I am getting pain in my shins and outer ankles when running (I had a minor case of talipes when I was born, but they sorted themselves out as I started to walk, but my ankles are weaker than a tea brewed for 10 seconds), and it's really getting in the way. Also... I am very nervous about running and how people perceive you when you run. Any tips on dealing with stagefright? That's the worry right now for me.
