I made it. I eventually ran the first run of them all. This was definitely a big hurdle for me to climb. I kept finding excuses: it's too hot, it's too wet, it's too late, I've got too much work to do etc etc etc. Well today after giving myself the I'm too tired spiel this morning I decided to finally stop listening to myself and get out there. Must say, I'm feeling very proud I managed to do it! I had more problems keeping my dog out of the stream we were running alongside than the run itself; and it was certainly entertaining running to Sarah milicans voice.
However, after about run 4 of 8 my shins started to get really tight and painful because they were so tight. Any tips to loosen them up? I'm not particularly surprised that my body complained, it was my first exercise in a long time, but I'm expecting a battle with my mind for each run, not my body too! Any help?
