I agree to take it easy and cut back a bit when you have the shin pain. I've also heard different shoes help, although I'm a total dummy when it comes to this stuff, I've run in my NB cross trainers and it hurt my shins and I've run in new Reebok running shoes and it hurt, so I don't know. Good luck!

I love not recognizing my body in the mirror!

I can do the Week 6 program, but it ain't pretty.

If I don't leave 2 days between runs I get a decent amount of pain in my shins. Everything I've read advises to hold back a little if that starts to happen. Apparently if I push too fast, it will do more harm than good. So, I'm gonna hang out at Week 6 until I can run it without my shins filing a grievance.

Right now I'm just so happy with how easy my breathing is and how steady my heart rate is that I don't really care if I have to spend the rest of my life running 3 on, 1 off.

OK, that's probably a lie. I hope I'm on to Week 7 before too long. LOL
