Hi I am in prep for my ADSC on 19th May and have perhaps been training over enthusiastically? I have an injury that seems to come and go and I'm never sure if I should be running on it and how long to stay of it? It appears to be the muscle on the shin......I thought it was skeletal at first but after a 5 mile run with a mile fartlek last night I definatley determined it to be muscular!! When I'm running it doesn't affect me but when I stop it's agony! After my run last night I couldn't put any pressure on it, It was worse than it's ever been. It has hurt before but after a day or two's rest it appears to have gone or atleast been comfortable. I read in runners world that this muscle needs strecthing by walking on your heels for 15 metres a day and can lead to shin splint? Has anyone suffered with this before and if so what did you do to overcome it? Thanks in advance!
