My Silver Lining

Thursday, May 23, 2013

So today was week 2 day 3 of my C25K training. From the moment I put my sneakers on my shin splints were hurting. I went to the gym anyway and got through my 5 minute warmup and then about 10 minutes of running/walking intervals. After that I was halfway done and my shins were killing me. I took 5 minutes to cool down and called it a day. I'm still proud of myself that I did 20 minutes and tomorrow is another day to try again. I think the humidity is getting to my muscles, but something is better than nothing.

    I am also on week 2 of C25K. I find that my arms hurt after running! I guess I am too tense. :) Be careful with shin splints.... If you ignore it and keep running, it can turn into a stress fracture. The same thing happened to a good friend of mine. Have you read the spark article on running? Its' fantastic!

Keep it up! emoticon
