Not allowed to run, shinsplints still keeping me on the couch. They feel so-o-o much better; today is the first day for a month when they haven't hurt when I'm walking.
I've bitten the bullet and been to a physio. I've exercises, foam rolling skills and a whole load of new enthusiasm to get out there. I'm going again on Tuesday for a gait analysis (a clinical one not a sales pitch one!) and more advice on posture, technique and general pummelling. I'm under STRICT instructions not to pound the pavements until then. They were fantastic. I'd held off, because I thought it would be a bit of a waste of money, as I'd found out all I needed to know by talking to people and researching on-line, but a bit of professional one-to-one advice has been... Well, inspirational, really. And if I get the green light, I shall run home from my appointment on Tuesday (it's not far). Hurrah!
