    Hello all-

    I started running a few weeks ago - doing the C25k plan without the podcast. And I have noticed in the past day that I have shin splints. I have been surprised at how much I'm enjoying my 4x a week run and I don't really want to stop - the pain isn't severe just annoying. Do I need to take a break for a week ? Or is this normal ?

    Hi
    Well done for doing C25k!!

    Sorry you have shin splints, they are meant to be quite painful.
    Think my advice would be to reduce the number of times you are running a week, or to rest for a week or two.
    The last thing you want is to make the condition worse.
    Hope you start to feel better soon :)
