Hello wise runners,
I would really appreciate some advice. In the 3/4 weeks since I graduated I've been pushing myself further on each run and I've gone from running 30 mins to 54 mins in that time.
It was only on the gym treadmill so probably couldn't have managed that on the roads (where my PB is 47 mins - bad weather drove me indoors!)
So yesterday after doing 54 min on the treadmill, I felt okay, tired but not exhausted, like I could have run more.
Then I did some weights for 15 mins as, according to Public Health England's One You app, as well as killing myself running miles three times a week, not drinking and eating lettuce, I need to do weight resistance too!! Jeez......
So did some some leg lifts and squats and felt fine. But last night at work I was limping! And today too.
The pain is in my right shin at the front - not a sharp pain, quite a dull one but making me limp nevertheless.
If it's shin splints, how long will I be out of action and what can I do to speed my recovery? I'm gutted I can't run tomorrow
Thanks for any advice!
