I am a runner who was injured with medial tibial stress syndrome (shin splints). After having trouble getting back to running for 9 months I decided it was time to start again. My training is a slow progression from couch to 100 miles. All in all I have only ran for about 4 or 5 months with success but I’ll be breaking that starting today. I will be blogging every day giving you all my training tips and my complete training schedules. I will also write monthly to pull out all the good and bad points of my training, and things I could do better in the following months. Feel free to use my blogs how you will at your own peril.

After doing these I moved onto day 9 of the 30 day free challenge on basic strength and core training. I have incorporated the basic mobility and balance routines too. I’m not sure if I need to do all these everyday but he keeps stressing persistence is key so there we go.
