Murph:- Perhaps try a gentle mile tomorrow if you can. If every thing feels fine then you can up it to two miles the following day. Ease back in sensibly. If calf & shin still feeling sore, then best to stop & rest some more.
I ran on what turned out to be a stress fracture on my shin. The result being that I've not raced at all this year, & have had to take a 4 month break from training. Am slowly trying to get to the sort of mileage I was used to doing regularly[averaging 65-70pw]. It can be hard for the ego to take, but best be cautious by taking a long view of things:- they'll be other races you can do if you're not ready for the ones you've already entered.
DT2, Luvsa, Mee Meep, UG, how you all doing? You can't just disappear you know
Still lurking SG After seeing a physio & my own GP I'm waiting to have a bone scan on my right shin.
Physio reckons I've got some bone abnormality, and not a simple splint or compartment syndrome. There's a permanent bump on the tibia which only gets painful along a small section after 20 odd easy miles in a week or straight after any tempo/speed session. But then pain usually disappears completely after 24-48 hrs. No pain from normal walking, so I haven't got the foggiest
Time will tell no doubt. It would be nice to do a race this year. Hope all your niggles are just niggles!..
