My Shin pain is back, but only in my right leg. I'm not sure how this happened. This is what I did last week:
Sunday - 10 mile run on trail
Monday - Rest
Tuesday - 1 hr. Spin Class
Wednesday - 4 mile run on treadmill (no pain)
Thursday - 1 hr. Spin Class
Friday - Rest
Saturday - 1 mile run on trail (with pain) *This should have been 12 miles but I had to stop because my right shin was hurting.
Sunday - Rest
Monday (today)- Attempted to run on the treadmill, but as soon as I started I felt a bit of pressure/pain.
I'm not quite sure why it started hurting again, I'm thinking it might have something to do with doing too much in my spin class. I've decided to look at this as a minor setback. I will adapt and overcome! I'm going to stop everything for now (except for my core workouts). I will continue to ice and elevate my leg each day then attempt a short run by the end of the week. I might give water running a try, I've heard good things about it. Has anyone else tried this?
I am actually thankful that I joined this new club that Jamoosh from Last Mile Lounge started. It's called The Hard CORE Club and it's thirteen weeks of The Beginning Core Workout. This is definitely something that I need to work on and now that I'm not going to spin classes for awhile I can concentrate on improving my core. I started the Core Workout yesterday and decided that I will commit to doing it 3 times a week.
