Running pains


So today I completed w2r3, but I feel like I’ve really struggled with this week- from having various pains while running and feeling really unfit 😞. I had pains today on the right side of my left shin (shin splints??) and had to slow to a walk for a wee second towards the end of one of the 90 second runs. I’m not sure what I’ve done wrong to hurt it- it’s not happened in previous runs. Should I rest it up for a bit or something? Any advice would be be appreciated ☺️

Good job so far. If it is shin splints some rest will be needed... and there’s ways of lessening the chances of them on here

Thank you, going to give myself a few days rest and see how it goes ☺️
