I never thought I'd say this, but I miss running. I honestly miss it so much I could cry.
Running is something I now have a passion for, along with swimming and biking. When I have a bad day at work, the first thing I want to do is come home and head up to the gym and just run on the treadmill and sweat my guts out.
So I'm sure you're thinking, well then, get your butt out there and go running, what is stopping you?!?!
You know what's stopping me? Stupid shin splints are stopping me!!!
This is the second time I've had shin splints. The first time they got SO bad I could barely walk. This time, they're not too bad.
I haven't gone running since Wednesday and I was hoping to go running tonight, but I couldn't. While I was swimming I could tell my shins weren't ready for it yet.
So, I will continue to wear my compression socks & use KT Tape and ice down my shins after every workout and hopefully I'll be able to run again soon.
