So, I did my first 5K run on Friday evening, last week 😊 I walked 10 miles on Saturday, then again on Sunday and was planning to do the same on Monday, but stopped after seven miles due to worsening pain in my left shin. By Monday evening, my shin was red, swollen hot and very sore.
I'm still suffering. My calf is hard, shin sore and swollen, and it's still quite warm. I'm really, really disappointed. I'd done a few one and two mile runs before the 5K run, with no problems. I can see my new-found fitness slipping away faster than I can run after it 😞 I'm struggling on with kettlebell workouts at home, but can't really do any legwork.
Just wondering how long it will last, when can I run again, and what's the chances of reoccurrence when I do run again?
TIA for any help and advice.
