I'm in the same boat - I'm going to be on Week 2 for quite some time. Maybe we're both smart enough & experienced enough to listen to our bodies instead of overdoing it and being miserable! emoticon

Shin splints come from a too-rapid increase in distance or intensity. I just finished week one, and I serioulsy doubt I can jump to two minutes of running in a couple of days.

The best shin-splint prevention I've ever found is lying on the floor with my feet on the wall for three minutes immediately after a run. I swear I can feel the fluid (and discomfort) draining out of my lower legs. Try it! (Stretching is important, but elevating my legs works even better.)

I finished Week 2 Day 2 today. I agree, the shift from 1 minute to 2 minutes jogging has been rough. I kept pretending I had Jillian from Biggest Loser yelling at me not to stop or slow down. I think my pace was pretty slow, but at least I did the whole 25 minutes as written. I took a peek at Week 3 and am already telling myself I can do it!

It's crazy how much harder 2 minutes is compared to 1 minute, but I'm doing it!

Please don't worry about your pace at this point. This program is to build your endurance to running. Speed will come later.

Yay! You finished! I personally don't care about pace, I have a few friends that want to hit certain times, I'm just happy that I put one foot in front of the other and reached the finish line! So great job!
I ran a week ago Monday (or 1 week ago today), but have had a horrible chest cold and haven't run since, I felt up to running yesterday but when I woke up one of my kids was sick and I had to stay with them, I planned a run this morning but woke up feeling something new, head congestion, which I am told is ok to run, but just moving makes me feel like my head is going to explode, so hitting the pavement sounds painful! Which is killing me because the weather here is BEAUTIFUL right now! Here's hoping for tomorrow!

Thank you ASHLEIGHGAL for the words of encouragement; believe me; they are truly needed. I took your advice and took an extra day; actually I took an extra two days because I had some pain near my left shin. Iím not sure exactly what the pain is because is; because it does not feel like shin splint.

Today I finished my week 2 day 3 and it went much better. My pace was not as fast as previous but I was able to complete the program for the day so I felt really good about that. Iím trying to motivate myself to start Week 3 day 1. I was going to jump right on it since Iím a bit behind schedule; it depends on how I feel tomorrow, I will play it by ear. Wish me luck!

I'm sorry to hear the run was so difficult. But try not to let it get you down, I've had some nasty runs myself, ones that I couldn't finish, ones that I had shin splints and calf cramps so bad I cried while I limped home. Let yourself heal an extra day and go back out! Don't let it scare you off.

And the scale is just stupid right now LOL emoticon

Iím in my second week; week 2 day 1 was great; however; week 2 day 2 was a nightmare; this was the first time I could not complete the last interval of the run; had to walk; shins were killing me; just a bad day. Iím trying to stay motivated through it all because I really want to complete this. On top of it the scales are not moving and Iím actually doing more and eating right. Itís so hard not to give up; but Iím determined. I hoping week 2 day 3 will show improvement.

Good job! I'm the crazy person in the park who's yelling at herself "don't you give up!" "you don't want to quit!" "get to that trashcan!" LOL

Day 1 - God, the last interval was a struggle! I had to be really strict with myself and chant "keep going" over and over in time with my steps to make it, and after all that the calorie tracker reckons I only burned 151 calories? Well that's a load of BS, it was way more with the amount of effort I put in! But I followed it properly, no cheating so a pat on the back for me!
