Boo!!

They are not a lot different, no
Same brand, just this years updated version. I even went to the Running Room and had my gait evaluated for the right shoe type. My coach offered to double check the type of shoe they chose for me and I will probable take him up on it

I am familiar with shin splints due to soccer. However I have never had them hurt as bad as this time :(

I wii be kind to my body in 2014; eat well, hydrate often, exercise & rest

Are your new shoes a lot different from the old ones? Maybe it is the shoes.

I have been doing Ice massage from a paper cup, 10 minutes at a time and its beginning to feel better

Perhaps wearing my new shoes on each run attributed to my aches and pains?? I should have worked them in by alternating with my old runners?

Hoping to run tomorrow, the weather has become unseasonably mild again! Perfect running conditions

If your shins are still really hurting in a couple more days, you may have a stress fracture and should have it checked out.

Supposed to run today, but that isn't going to happen. Each footstep hurts. STILL

I agree. I would hold off until you can get those calves loosened up. Running with such tight muscles can lead to injuries. Wishing you the best and loose muscles!!

I would not run if I were you if it's painful to walk. I wonder if the ice just made the muscles even more tight...usually heat helps loosen muscles. You may need to see a doc about it.

Had my 1st long run on sunday, with tight calves. Each leg felt like there was a tennis ball in my calf they were so tight and painful (partly due to the cold weather as well, i was tensing up)

My coach stayed with me b/c i was much slower than the group due to the pain, encouraging me...walking when i needed and letting me stretch. He was great (no shin splints at that point, just tight calves) I wear compression socks when running b/c I always seem to be nursing one form of pain or another. They do help me.

When i got home I even had an ice bath to soothe my calves and it was difficult but I wore my toque, had a hot tea and sat in there 15minutes until 2 full bags of ice melted. So i woke at 2 in the morning with painful shin splints and have been icing my shins on and off all day but I am one hurting unit! It hurts to walk.

I am at the start of week 2 in my training. I am supposed to run 5k tomorrow and 5k wednesday.

Help! What should I do??!!
