Hi all - I've been following this in the hope of managing a 5k run but unfortunately things are not going so well!
I started off ok but once I got to week 6 workout 2 I started to get shine splints. My shoes are good as I bought them from a running shop and had everything professionally done so I read about shine splints. The advise was 'take a two week break then start again'.
I've had the two week break and gone back to week 2!! however I'm still getting shine splints! Not bad enough to stop me completing the week 2 program but enough that I can feel the pain.
My question is - Has anyone else had a similar problem? and should I just stick with week 2 in the hope that once my body gets used to it the pain will disappear and I can move on to week 3 etc?
Any thoughts apprecaited
