After taking courage I just started today. I think I ran slower than I'm used to walk, but I could do it for 60 seconds, surprisingly, and finish the first day. I think the cold weather was the worst, I need something to protect my ears. LOL :) . However, I felt I was forcing more my right leg and could feel a bit the front part of the lower leg bone, in the middle of it. What am I doing wrong?

Proper shoes wouldn't be a bad idea. Also make saure you run tall, dont stride out in front of your body. Shiorter steps are win! And don't worry about speed. You are supposed to run this program as slow as you possibly can. The slower you run, the longer you can run and endurance is the key!

Welcome, Rita! Don't worry about running slower than walking. I ran so slowly in the beginning it felt like I was jogging in place!

 

Try this running form and see if it helps with your shin pain:

Focus on incorporating one move at a time: take smaller steps, pull your navel into your spine while keeping your chest and shoulders down, forcing your exhale breath out. Everyone breathes differently. I like breathing in through nose and forcing air out of my mouth with a "Ha!" sound.

 

Let us know how Week 1 Day 2 goes!
