September 24: After last week, I was determined to run two miles without stopping on all three of my runs this week but ohhhh guess what? After I got back from this run my shin started to hurt. Gooooooo figure.
- Mile 1 – 11:49
- Mile 2 – 11:50
September 27: So I certainly took my time spacing out my runs because I heard the best thing you can do for shin splints is to rest them. I also decided to go ahead and revert back to the Couch to 5K app because when Kevin and I did the Susan G. Komen race in 2012, that worked wonders for me and I had no problems with my shins. But because I’m in decent shape, I obviously didn’t start at the beginning and started on week 4 with the hopes of being able to run 3 miles without stopping by the middle of October. Shin splints are no fun. No fun at all.
