Shin Splints

..sigh…

On Sunday i was feeling well enough to run so i laced my shoes and took it slow and easy. It hurt, at first, but i pushed on..the pain receded and i felt really good and glad. I took it slow and just put one foot in front of the other.

Come Sunday afternoon, i would feel pain when i stood after sitting even for short periods of time..it is especially hurts on my left leg. Even on Monday i was limping. However i did some yoga and it eased the pain somewhat.

Today is Tuesday and i am not in as much pain as i was yesterday. I did more yoga..i think it is helping.

So i have decided to take it easy on the running for the rest of the month and take up yoga and other strength exercises that won’t stress my legs too much.

When i lace up on the 30th or 31st of May, i will have a pair of new shoes (fingers crossed) and lots of heart to run!

Inshallah.
