Decided to bump back up to Week 2 today, and it was hard. It's embarrassing how difficult it is to run for 90 seconds. For real. BUT, I'm sticking with it, and I'm encouraged by how quickly I seem to recover. It was much warmer today. I'm not looking forward to 100+ degrees coming up soon!
So far so good on the shoes preventing shin splints! Thanks for the great suggestion, LauraC!
On Saturday, I didn't run, but I did the 5-mile Walk for Babies while pushing my baby in a non-jogging stroller. I figure that counted for something. =)
