I'm trying to do the couch to 5k but I'm hitting stumbling blocks along the way and I'm finding it hard to stay motivated. A few weeks ago I got to week 3 but by the second run my shins were really hurting and it was painful even when walking. I looked for advice and went to a running shop to get my gait checked and got new shoes, compression socks also. I had 2 weeks off until the pain had completely gone then started on week 3 again but the same thing happened after the second run. I've iced my shins had another week off and just done some waking etc. Don't know what to do next, can someone please advise? I'm 47 yr old , not used to running but do other exercise regularly and I really want to complete this!
