I just got in from my run…today was supposed to be a half hour easy run. Half hour I did; though it wasn’t easy at all. I have shin splints. I felt like my legs were going to break and the pain was resonating through my entire leg…I was still in denial….thought I might have an electrolyte imbalance or be a little dehydrated. I just looked in my running book and it matches shin splints to a t or a stress fracture. 😦
Needless to say this was the first run that I was grumpy the entire time. I probably should have stopped and walked buuuuuut I didn’t. I just got out of an ice cold shower and am currently elevating my legs and icing them to ward off swelling. Then I’ll put heat on it later.
I don’t like complaining in here either because really it’s nothing. It’ll improve, it won’t be the death of me; whereas, it very well could be for those I run for. I run and keep running to help fund cancer research.
