Yes shins. Shin splints or worse hairline fractures. Its exactly the same injury I gave myself 35 years ago when I first attempted to be a runner.
Same reason, too much too soon and way too much force.
Unfortunately, once my shins had got to the same stage as emily, I just gave up. I didn't expect to still be hurting from just walking down stairs for weeks on end afterwards.
It was actually 18 months before all tenderness had gone from from the area afflicted. I didn't try running again for a few years after that.
It does appear that the problems facing newbies is based on them following a pre prescribed program, when adhering to principles of training is more appropriate.
Its a difficult situation but at the outset of training, a new runner is more unique than at any other time. The training must be a calculated yard by yard job, with total recovery from the actual exercise being the deciding factor.
I'm going to have to sort something out. There's too many newbies getting injured for my liking.
Sorry Lardarse, but to comply with RW rules I've had to take your comment and make adjustments. See below.
To the OP - just ignore Lardarse - he's a troll.
Cal's advice is sound an, and she says, hopefully you are getting some form of treatment for your BDD.
Oh.. so I'm a troll because my opinion differs from yours? Are you sure it's not simply a fact that you're a pretentious a*****e?
You know nothing abut me, nothing about my life, yet you feel you can make judgements.
Body dysmorphia?!?!? PMSL!!!!!!!
From all your crappy threads and stupid comments you obviously think you're something special, but you're not very bright are you. Why do you think I call myself Lardarse??! You f*****g retard!
After 40 years I've realised there's no help, no one cares, no ones there to help you. We're born alone, we die alone. Nothing anyone can say will make you feel different, you just have to get with it and shut up.
