I can feel everyone cringing as they read this however here we go. I finished my first sprint race program in december and decided that i would like to do a 70.3 in Feb. So i got the HIM program of this site and counted back the weeks until race day. I started the program in week 9 of 20 which was ok in terms of training load for my riding and swimming, but not for the running. I did the sessions slow to try and minimise impact but started to get sore shins. I continued the sessions until i had to stop mid-session one day. I had 2 weeks off running and they felt good, but since picking back up again they have progressed to the painful stage previously experienced.
I realise that the cause of the problem was probably increasing to fast to quick so i have to stop running for a period of time.
Do i do aqua jogging to supplement the running sessions or do bike/ or swim sessions instead?
Or, even rest for my programs run sessions??
The 70.3 is in 4.5 weeks.
