Hello, was so chuffed I'd ticked off the first two weeks without any major issues, aside from cow dodging (both herds and lone rogue ones lurking) but was slightly nervous at the increase in running duration. Consequently I slowed it down this morning even more to what could probably be classed as a tickle of a jog but soon started with what felt like the front outside muscle of my shins going into spasm!! It wore off during the walking sections, I'm not sure if it was the different running style, the fact it was pretty chilly and I'm still wearing cropped joggers so my lower legs were cold despite the warm up walk, or it's the start of dreaded shin splints
So question is should I take more than one rest day or just go for it as usual? I'm trying to stick to Monday, Wednesday and Friday. I'm guessing some strengthening exercises will help here, can anyone suggest any good sites as its a bit bewildering in the amount out there!!
