I suffered an ankle injury a few years ago while training for a full marathon and thought I was done. I made an appointment with a Sports Medicine(physician) specialist who then referred me to a Physical Therapist who worked me through the injury while offering different treatment modalities. After a few weeks I was ble to run a scheduled HM and then the FM a few months later. Just hang in there and listen to your body and get some professional advice from your PCP. Hope you are able to run your HM.

Amy

Thanks for the answers. Cross training (that you have been cleared to do by your doc) is one way to keep your cardio-respiratory system fired up. Depending on how long you will be out will determine whether or not you can stay on track. Keep in mind though, you will not be able to start back where you left off. You will need to slowly build back your running base.

Take time to heal your shin splints.

Coach nancy;
10 km to date
I do not have access to a pool, I have not run a half marathon before (although I got to 18 km last summer when my i.t band flared up and prevented me from training further)

RUN-GIRL71,

Have you run this distance before? Do you have access to a pool (for pool running)? What has been your longest run to date in your training?

I am in week 7 of my training for may 26th half marathon. Last week i developed posterior shin splints, wrapped and ran through the pain. Big mistake as the following day i could not bear pressure on my foot. I have been for two massages to work it out (have 2 more scheduled) and plan on cycling until i get the go ahead to run....i also practice yoga and i feel like my lungs could run forever, if only this body could keep up

My question is- has anyone come back from injury and made it the start line!!??
