C25K, week 1 day 1
I started out running outside, but it was so windy that I decided to continue on the treadmill in the rec center at my complex. Problem is that for some reason treadmills give me awful shin splints. I got through the first two runs and wasn't even out of breath. And then the splints hit. I stopped and stretched a bit and tried to keep going but it wouldn't stop hurting. So I decided to run back to my front door and call it good. I got through 11 minutes, and went .75 miles according to my iPod. Which isn't bad. I just need to figure out how to keep my legs from hurting so I can finish! Is this an endurance thing? Will it get better the more I run?
