Help me regain my Joy Of Running

Help me regain my love for running! Started a few years ago, did a half marathon last Oct then slacked off over the winter (did a fair bit on cross trainer/ rower though) then I had my orthotic sorted out, got used to walking non-wonkily and started running again. Hooray! I had trained up properly, enjoying getting running again, did over 8 miles on Monday in preparation for the big run yesterday. Then, did the big run. 8.5 miles of hell - it was boiling hot and bright sun, the race started at 11 and I was slow - so, horrible. I know I was sensible, kept hydrated etc etc, actually feel reasonably OK today, just a bit achy. But a) I feel I failed in the race as I ran it last year find (working on that though, the main one is:) b) I really feel I do not want to go out running again. How do I break through this?

RunningInjuryFilter: Doing couch to 5k. On week 7 (25 minutes running 3 times a week). Yey! After doing a weighted squat incorrectly a couple of weeks ago (too much weight on balls of feet), have a soreness/twinge/ache on my left front lower leg (about where shin splits would be). This gets better as I exercise and warm up, but it also hasn't gone away. Do I need to take a week off? Will this get better or worse if I ignore it? Will I hinder my progress? [more inside]

Shin pain when running - on the outside of the shin bone - help!

I know you are not my doctors and we will be visiting Dr M. The Doctor Who Runs, but in the meantime, any suggestions/experience would be most welcome. Mr LyzzyBee wanted to start a running programme with me. As he was doing 3 mile walks once or twice a day for a total of 3 or 4 a week, and an hour on a Sunday on the cross-trainer/rower/bike combo, we started a bit more than a "couch to 5k" We did the below training. He complained of running out of steam on the Sunday, and today he got shin pains. On the OUTSIDE not the inside of the shin bone, and he got a little lump by each shin bone (yuck) as he ran. Stopped as soon as (I noticed) he was in pain. Running quite slowly, we're averaging 4.9-5 mph. I have a feeling I've pushed him too hard. What do you guys and gals think? [more inside]

iPhone Running Setup Gear

I'm looking for advice on the right way to get set up for running with an iPhone in terms of gear/accessories. Specifically, I'm looking for explicit product recommendations for cases and earpieces. I think I'd like a case that I can wrap around my arm and definitely want a water resistant case. I don't care about being able to advance songs or anything -- it's fine if the list just plays through. I'm thinking corded earphones are the best option because this allows flexibility for listening to music and if I can get one with the iPhone button, ability to deal with calls. What's the best setup to run with the iPhone, thinking calls, music, security and the like??

How I can best protect my huge blisters so that tomorrow I can run a 10K in relative comfort?

Yesterday (Thursday) I did a pretty long run (7 miles out and back over pretty large hill in an hour and fifteen minutes). Tomorrow (Saturday) I'm running a 10k race in Santa Monica. Thursday's run wouldn't have been that big of a deal, except for the fact I had to borrow cotton socks (Champion brand from Costco) from my father as I forgot to pack my synthetic running socks. Now that gave quarter sized blisters on the front part of the arch of each foot. They're right behind the "ball". Also, during the run I the blisters popped and outer skin rubbed off. So, both feet have circles where the top layer (layers?) of skin is gone. [more inside]
