I've tried running a few times, but nothing consistent. It seems that everytime I do try to run, I end up with crippling shin splints for weeks after even a short run. I thought the C25K might be ok because it involves a lot of walking at first. I started it earlier today, and I can already feel my shins starting to hurt. This will inevitibly mean that I won't be able to continue for the rest of the week, and probably even next week. I just don't know what to do. I want to lose around 3-4 stone, and thought this might be my chance, but the shin splints are yet again going to prevent me from doing it.
