I have never been a runner but recently a friend of mine lost her battle with mental health, so in her memory Iv signed up to a 5k to raise some money for MIND the mental health charity.
But I’m finding this so incredibly hard I keep having to repeat runs and just as I feel my cardio is getting better Iv got shin splints. And Iv only just finished week 3, I can’t imagine being anywhere near ready in 6 weeks time.
Most of my runs have ended with me in tears. I just want to know I’m not alone in finding this so hard.
