Day 17 & 18

Day 17 was completed in the morning and followed by a brisk 25 min walk in to the city as I had a course to attend. I walked home again later that afternoon and could tell I had struck a problem.

My shins were sore.

Thankfully this is not a problem that has been caused by the 30 day shred workout but rather from my attempt to get up to running 5km. Its a previous problem that has resurfaced and I have decided that I need to accept the fact that I am just not a distance runner.. well my shins arent! I'm not going to move further on in my couch to 5km program. I seem to be able to comfortably manage a few minutes of jogging and walking and that will have to do. I'm disappointed but thanks the the shred workout I can see there are plenty of other ways to get fit and stong.

So because of the shins.. I took my first day off from the shred workout to give them a rest but was back to it this morning and completed day 18!
