Need advise! I'm training for my first half marathon- the Cardiff Half Marathon on October 17th. For the last 4-6 weeks I've had really bad pain down my shins; the muscle that runs just to the outer side of the shin gives me lots of pain and is really hindering my training.
It's generally at its worse for the first 5km then tends to ease up but I'm struggling to run any distance at the moment without having to stop and walk as the burn makes me want to sit on a park bench and cry... I figure that's not a good look though so try to restrain myself!
How do I get over this? I've tried reducing the number of times I got a week and the distance but it's persistant!
Been running since about January, more into it in the last 3-4 months or so. Generally try and go 4-5 times a week and go between 5-12km, furthest is 19.5km.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated
