Hi everyone. I started ct5k 3 weeks ago. I get shin splints during every run although they are getting less painful now. Week 1 was great and week 2 started off ok then run 3 I found really hard. I decided to 're run week 2 again and tonight was run 3 of week2 and it was awful, I've never been so out of breathe. I'm feeling really down hearted about it as I thought I would find it easier the more I'm doing running but it's not the case. Has anyone else been through this?
