Shin Splints are Baaaaaaack

Just a heads up ladies.




Yup, I felt crappy after the speed workout yesterday morning. (something about my calf muscle having a 20 minute charlie horse... only remedy? a warm bath full of leg stretches) But I wasn't sure if it was just me. I went on a walk this afternoon, it started hurting. Decided to try running... Baaaad plan... especially without tape.




Let's start an anti-shin splints prayer....well... I guess they are here, so that would be praying for a miracle. Let's pray that the tape, ibprofen and my undying will to finish the stupid 18 miler race will workout. Pah-lease. My first goal? To finish our 2-3 mile tempo run tomorrow. Wish me luck!

For the love. Stupid shin splints. I really need to find my magic wand again to get rid of those for you. ;) Let's add "new shoes" to the list of things to do. In fact, if you get your new shoes I will get you any treat of your pepsi, gummy worms....mmmmmm....
