Went out this evening to do a repeat of week 5 run 1 as I haven't been running for over 2 weeks due to shin splints and a horrible cold. Previously I had just finished week 7 which I felt great about, so a bit disappointing to stop as you can imagine.
Finally made it out tonight, but it was terrible weather to go running in for a start - I thought my tracksuit was waterproof but it turns out it isn't!! You wouldn't believe how drenched I was when I got home (ladies, eyeliner+rain=PANDA)! Although I managed the runs ok, I can once again feel the familiar pain in my left shin that I felt before, so am a bit worried that the problem isn't fixed just trying to massage the area and keep stretching, let's hope it helps.
Despite all that it's lovely to read all the excited, super-happy blogs out there, great that people feel like they're achieving so much! I still love this program even though I'm a bit held back by injury at the moment.
Happy running all! x
