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!

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 :)
