I've noticed, since W1R3, the familiar swollen tightness in the interior lower shin. I stretched out and went for a long swim yesterday but it hasn't really seemed to help. I don't feel them at all when sitting, but they reappear when walking.
Today is my Week 2, Run 1 and I really don't want to have to stop and start the process again.
===== Actions I am taking ======
I have proper running shoes but it's possible they're worn down and I'm going to go out and get fitted for new ones tonight. Is there anything else I can do when running? I have icepacks for afterwards so I can use the RICE method.
=== Questions ===
I heard inclines are bad for shin splints (which seems counter intuitive) and on my last couple of runs I was running uphill for at least 20 minutes. Could that be the problem?
It was going so well
