OK guys i've been training for a while now and my sit-ups push-ups and pull-ups have come on greatly. But at the start of my running i pushed myself too hard because i felt almost walking pace 2 milers wouldn't help me get quicker at all. Inevitably i developed shin-splints and had them for a while and then they went. But still doing awfully slow runs doesn't sound beneficial to me at all. So will it? Or can you offer me something else to try.
