I have shin splints :(
Remember how I thought it would be a wonderful idea to run 6 miles last Saturday when I've only ran 3 at the most? Well I'm now paying the price. My right outer lower leg is killing me!
I took most of the week off and went for a run with mama on Thursday. Right away my leg was burning and hurting. I tried to run through in, but by the end of the 2 mile run I was a gimp. Now my leg is aching pretty much all the time. Dang leg.
So, I'm going to take it easy because I have my 1st 5K next weekend. I'm going to rest, ice, and use Cory's blue goo stuff he swears by. I'm also going to try and stretch better and look into getting some new shoes. My Walmart ones just aren't cutting it anymore. I'm going to try Jillian Michael's Shred video tonight so I'm not a total slacker.
Running injuries suck.
