Before I started the couch to 5k programme I stupidly thought I could just start running, rubbish technique, rubbish warm up and rubbish footwear. Ended up with what I think was shin splints.
So I rested fully for a few weeks, went to a running shop and invested in fantastic running shoes, started warming up properly and started the couch to 5k app. I've struggled with a tight feeling in my shins and front lower leg muscles through most of the run until the last 5-10 mins.
I've been doing really well and am on wk9 run 3 so just about to graduate! Only thing is the past week or so my shins have been aching (not agonising pain like it was before) more than usual through out the whole run.
Has anyone got any advice and also some stretches that are good for this?
