from this going soo well, during last nights plod was a little sore in my left shin - not enough to stop plodding, but definitely there
so tonight was club night - no running partners there now, the other plodding Mums seem to have all given up
however one of the coaches is a sports masseur/therapist, so I had a quick consultation and after a couple of painful prods he prounced the dreaded words "shin splints"
offered various suggestions:
padding in the heels of my shoes to reduce jarring, running on softer surfaces, ricing, resting .... and if I feel it is necessary a painful session of massage with him.....
had thought I might have a little plod on the field , but it was pouring with rain and blowing a hooly so I had second thoughts and decided a day's rest would not do any harm
some reading on the RW site I shall go for some rest, ice and see how it goes - really want to do BM this weekend, so may also take some ibuprofen to help get thorugh that and thensee how it goes.
Must make the effort to do more off road running - but locally off road also means hilly, or a very boring field!
tomorrow: possible short jog or gym
