I have repeatedly taken up running but failed to continue due to the same stiffness and pain issue.
I can jog or speed walk for almost exactly 1k, then my shin muscle and ankle becomes super stiff and the pain makes it impossible to continue. I have tried walking to get the muscle warm, stretching and even shin splint exercises but I cannot get beyond this barrier.
I wonder if it is a arch or foot placement issue but cannot find any information. I hope that someone else has had, and overcome this issue?
I'd just like to find a solution to the above so I can achieve a 5k and build on that.
Thanks for your help!!
