pretty convinced i have developed/acquired shin splints. my left shin/front of calf is somwhat sore, even though my last run was a few days ago. i think i've had the issue for a while as well, so there is that risk of it turning into something nastier like a stress fracture... yay me.
this is all self diagnosis, by typing in my injury symptoms into the internet and discounting all the ones that say i have a brain tumour (page 3 or 4 i think it was).
i could do a sensible thing and see a physio, or i could take the advice of people i don't know on the internet. what i want are some exercises, a likely rehab period and some idea of when i can get back regular running again. ideally next week sometime (just kidding).
heel raises... stretches... mobilisation and stablisation exercises... drinking wine... i'll try anything.
