The harder they come - Week 5, run 3

At the begining of the week I'd incurred a suspected shin splint injury which kept me from running for a few days. On the advice of my running fantic son, I invested in a foam roller and did a lot shin splint stretching. This morning I took myself off out for wk 5, run 3.

I thought I would never complete this session.

By slowing my pace down and working on my stride. I actually ran for 27 minutes. :)

Come on week 6!

  • 27 minutes, wow! You're putting the rest of us to shame :)

  • Thanks - I only managered 27 minutes because if truth be known, I wasn't tuned into Laura. I used Laura for the warm up then I went onto my own running track list :)

  • Brilliant well done! :)

  • Thanks - Its such a great sense of achievement. :)

  • Great job, hope your shin splints ease off.

    All the best for W6

  • Thanks - I'm learning fast how look after shins :)
