I hate shin splints!

Friday, July 30, 2010

OK, I can't deny it any longer, I must stop my running to heal this shin splint! I've been battling it all summer. It began this past spring when I put my last year's running shoes on and started hitting the bike trails. I purchased new moderate supportive running shoes thinking that with an occasional icing and 1-3x/day stretching, I would be pain free. No so much...

Today, headed to another biking trail with my chocolate lab, Macy. Ran about a mile and a half and could no longer run. Ended up walking (hated it) the mile and a half back AND it started raining on us:( I was all set for lower body workout when I got back but had to bail out on that also. Iced the heck out my shin.

OK, I'm ready to get serious to heal this thing. I will NOT run until it has healed. I will take IB around the clock CONSISTENTLY. I will ice 3x/dy. I will stretch 3x/dy. I will find some lower impact cardio to do instead, maybe get out my hip hop abs again.

I'm going to give it one week!
