ok, so am a new runner.. first indoor treadmill at the gym, progressed from 5 minutes up to a one off 45 min run over a period of weeks. Now have ventured outdoors on a 2 mile route. Admittedly i haven't managed to run it all in one go just yet. And, I think I am really slow. I'm not concerned about people staring or sniggering anymore though.
I run with my husband, who i make run ahead of me, I have a huge fear of tripping up his feet due to him being glued at my side so he gives me impetus to run/keep up because i REFUSE to be bested/beaten by him
What i do need to know (sorry for rambling) is just how do i manage to do the whole 2 miles without stopping? oh and have mild shin pain.
any ideas please?
