Evening all. Crappy 3 miler 8:50 pace tonight: shin splint was pretty sore from the off (first time this has happened) and hurts now after, too. Pain eased off a bit once I was warmed up but that's likely just masquerading the issue.
Straight on to the ice now and have taken a couple of ibuprofen but the signs aren't good. Schedule this week is 5 tomorrow, 3 Thursday and 10 Saturday. Guess I'll know fairly soon whether I can continue. So frustrating!
I hate treadmill running. Sometimes though it is a necessary evil! I can't imagine you get the same benefits as outdoor running though; can't be as good at working the stabiliser muscles for example. That's just a guess, mind. Does anyone know how the two compare?
