Week 1 run 1 today. I went and got properly fitted for shoes and got the running socks too before I started Got shin pain early on and quit running after the 5th run as it was hard enough walking by then, not only the shins but general muscle fatigue, and I was still a mile from home with a hill to walk up. Shin pain eased while walking up hill and is ok now. I was surprised how hard it was as I've been doing regular walking for 5 weeks, 2.5 to 3 miles at a time with an average speed of around 3.36mph.
Wondering if it's getting used to the weight of running shoes as opposed to the sandals I've mostly worn when walking. My toes were numb too.
Any advice welcome before I go again on Thursday.
