I woke up this morning and realized that I have shin splints. I thought my legs were hurting a little during my walk yesterday but, I told myself it was just a walk and shouldn't hurt. Besides my friend had a birthday and I promised her I would care for her horse..including walking him a few miles. I had just run (well walk...run for me) a hard 3 miles the day before.
This morning I realized it wasn't just sore muscles from a hard work out but shin splints.. ...maybe I should have just taken the day off.
It's depressing to try and push yourself and then end up not being able to even go out for a walk. I've been researching what to do for shin splints on the web this morning. Guess I need to go take some motrin.
At lease my friend got to enjoy herself with her husband on her birthday and not worry about her horse.
