Well, here's the ugly week. Guess we gotta take the good with the bad...
38 miles...Took Monday off just because I hadn't had a day off in a while. Then went 12-11-10, all pretty good runs. But...felt a stinkin' pain in my shin towards the end of my 10 in the cold rain on Thursday. Didn't think much about it. Did an easy 4 Fri morning. Left shin hurt pretty good. About 4" up from the foot, just left of center. What the heck is this? Doesn't hurt to push on it, just when I flex it. Took Friday night off just to rest it another day.
Set out for my run Saturday afternoon. Shin felt fine...for about 200 yards. I was walking 1/4 mile later. Walked home. Extremely painful. Felt like I was hit in the shin with a hammer. Never felt anything like it before, ever. Maybe shin splints in Jr. High School but man! It seemed to come out of nowhere. Took today off. I can barely feel it; I can walk fine. I've been stretching & icing. We'll test it tomorrow...Ok, I'm done whining....
All the Best,
