I also got shin splints in week 2. After my week off I'm restarting and planning to be a little less aggressive. I think that's what got me...

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! emoticon

Do what feels best for you. If you don't feel you can do week 2 then go back to week 1.
Just don't quit!

I was well into week 2 when I was struck by the dreaded shin splints. I've been off for the past week and have decided to try again.

I'm just wondering if I should continue with week 2 or start completely fresh and redo week 1. I'm leaning toward doing a complete do over so that the shin splints don't come back. What would you do?
