Ok, after getting over the ankle pain I posted about at an earlier time, I started sprints at the gym and guess what? Shin splints! Seriously!?
I'm quite sure it's self-inflicted, not stretching, overdoing it to start back up, etc.
So it's feeling pretty good actually and I'm wondering how to resume. I do have good running shoes. I've armed myself with good stretching exercises to use. My questions is how exactly to resume? I've just been doing sprint intervals: 3 min. warmup, 8 sprints at 6.2 mph (4 or 5 incline) alternating with recoveries of 3.7 mph. It's not like I was doing 5 miles or anything.
I guess I need to know how to ease back in time-wise? How many sprint sessions to start with, how long to stay there before upping the ante, etc. 4-5 days week is the goal.
Any and all help appreciated.
