Well I still don't feel I can call myself a graduate yet.. even though I have now completed the week 9 run 3 podcast three times.. because each time I have just got to about 27 mins and had to stop walk and run again... mostly due to splintering pain in my right calf and shin and also partly down the the heat Im not used to running in! But today... I woke up and can hardly even walk on it, my shin is in so much pain I am hobbling around and have a shin support on it straped tightly to help, ive even taken paracetamol ( Im allergic to all other painkillers) I had to drive my son to school with gritted teeth because the pain is agony and I really am feeling down and like giving up totally - I didnt take up running to feel crippled with pain like this!!!!! I have my first 5k in two weeks as well!!!!!!!!!!
