Be certain that the shin splints are gone completely before running. I had them a while back and if you continue to run with them, you will set yourself back from even power walking.
I would try a session of week one to see if you feel you can continue with week two and take it from there. There is no race to get to your finish line. Ifyouy want this badly, you will take evey step to achieve it even if they are baby steps.
I just finished day 3 of week 2 and not certain if can get through day one of week 3 but will give it a try. I found running for 2 minutes straight a challenge and I almost felt that I was getting a shin splint back in my right leg again. Stretched after my run and it feels okay now.
Will be attempting week 3 on Monday. All the best to all of you during this challenge.

I definitely don't plan on quitting. If I have to repeat the whole thing from the beginning then I will.
I've been wanting to be able to do this for way too long to give up now besides if I did give up I wouldn't be sending a very good message to my boys.
I actually recruited one of my sons to be my running and accountability partner. Funny thing is I've asked friends in the past to walk/run with me and help keep me accountable but after a few weeks it would drop off. My son, on the other hand, just keeps cheering me on and encouraging me to do my best and he's only 14!
