I have just completed week 1 and I love it so far! The only problem is that I have got shin splints again, I say again because every time I try to start running I get them, then give up. This time, I thought that doing it the sensible way, with a proper program I can take it easy and it'll be fine.....wrong! I watch all these large people on 'Biggest Loser' running without any problems...why me?
I have self-diagnosed a little & think I run a little flat footed & also over-pronate a bit...not a great combination for a budding runner
I have ordered some new trainers off the internet (I live in the Canary Islands) so they should arrive any day, I bought some insoles for extra support and I have been doing stretches...I am sat, at this very moment sat with ice packs on (just completed the 3rd run of week 1)
What I would like to know is, is there anybody out there that has over come this problem...and how?
