I have shin splints!!
I was suppose to do 10 miles last Saturday, and could only get through 5! I had to walk back to the car, it wasn't pretty. I tried to run through it, but I started to compensate for my shin pain and my hip started to hurt. I just stopped and walked back. No need to throw my hip out too.
I am taking this whole week off of running, icing, elevating and resting my left leg. I think I have been hitting the speed work a little too hard and that's what trigger the shin splints.
This coming Saturday is a 12 miler......I'm going to pass on it and pick up my training on Monday.
