Well the IC has got me, boo hoo I seem to have shin splints on my right leg. It feels ok when I get up after a nights rest, but is painful at night. I haven't increased my running distance much, but have been walking a lot more due to the nice weather and playing football with my boys, so kicking the ball won't have helped. I ran the other day, as I run in the morning and it felt ok until I stopped. I am naturally active and can't keep off my feet for long so need to do some other exercise for a couple of weeks to compensate for no running. I know swimming is good, but I can't get to our nearest one, so I was wondering if the cross trainer would be ok ?
I didn't get my new trainers for Mother's Day because finances dictated other things were more important and I can't help wondering if my old shoes could be adding to my problems.
