First time runner with shin splints :(

Yes I do, but I think if you're starting out, it's hard enough putting one leg in front of the other without trying to alter your natural stride at the same time. A few minutes each day on simple conditioning exercises will probably do you more good in the long term.

Well I think you can ditch the insoles right away. Shin splints is usually just too much too soon. Don't worry about cadence and trying to alter your stride there isn't really a quick fix.
I would rest until the pain goes and I'm the meantime do some strengthening on your calves. The underlying problem is usually one of the two major calf muscles overeorking to compensate cor weakness un the oylther one . Google has stood and try ten on each door three times a day.

Pallid? So if he'd only rubbed on a bit of fake tan he'd have got away with it...;-)

Are you and "in" or an "out"?

Yes the best result would be an extremely narrow remain that would give a mandate to British politicians to challenge what is wrong about the EU, but europe will see a yes vote as an endorsement of all its policies. The question is just too narrow.

No one ever gets this poem...least of all the people who think Britain's great...

Quinquireme of Nineveh from distant Ophir,
Rowing home to haven in sunny Palestine,
With a cargo of ivory,
And apes and peacocks,
Sandalwood, cedarwood, and sweet white wine.

Stately Spanish galleon coming from the Isthmus,
Dipping through the Tropics by the palm-green shores,
With a cargo of diamonds,
Emeralds, amythysts,
Topazes, and cinnamon, and gold moidores.

Dirty British coaster with a salt-caked smoke stack,
Butting through the Channel in the mad March days,
With a cargo of Tyne coal,
Road-rails, pig-lead,
Firewood, iron-ware, and cheap tin trays.

Just do it and you'll get a reality check one way or the other.

You really won't be last, I've seen loads of rfl's, and there are always people who are struggling to walk the distance and finish well over an hour. The atmosphere is good and a large proportion of the runners wil be first timers.
