Ah! the Joy of Shin Splints!
Slow down and if your pain does not go away take a break. Make sure that you have adequate arches in your shoes to support your feet. Do not "work through the pain"-- if it is shin splints, working through will make it worse.
They are (*possibly*) supposed to be bad, but I love running on the treadmill in my big rocker-bottom shoes (Shape-Ups, etc). My feet and legs hold up much better with all of that padding.
But I got talked out of them, so I am now on hiatus from the running program while I work on getting rid of my fabulous new New Balance brand shin splints. No treadmill for me until I have minimum 4 days pain free on the rower, elliptical, and/or bike.
Just Keep Moving.
Go Go Lovely Limes!
