Wk5 run 2 , man ! my shins hurt !!

That was blummin hard BUT I thought I had to do 3 runs of 8 minutes , but it was only 2 ... hoorah !

I have the dreaded 20 min run on Wednesday, I started the plan last year , and managed to do that run , so even if it takes a few attempts, I'll do it again โค๏ธ

My shins really hurt today ๐Ÿ˜ฉ but I'm thinking possibly because I drank too much bank holiday wine last night ๐Ÿ˜ณ

  • Well done, I have literally just finished wk5 run 2 and so agree it was hard. It's my left knee that's giving me pain especially for the first 8 mins. I must say I'm excited about run 3 but it does feel like a big step. I'm planning on trying it Wednesday but may give myself an extra days rest depending on how my knee feels. Never thought I would be at this level so soon that's over half way through. Should be feeling proud of ourselves. Good luck on Wednesday.

  • Best of luck Stampy ,let me know how you get on . Are you on the Strava group , if so ,I'll cheer you on ๐Ÿ˜

  • I'm not using Strava I'm using my fit bit to log my stats but I will definitely post my progress on here. It is with out doubt an inspiration to know I'm not on my own on this journey.

  • Well, besides all the Newbies.. you have all of us there with you too :)

  • I've just done week 5 run 2 today too. Am also not looking forward to the 20mins straight!!

  • You are ready for it..just relax and take it gently :)
