I haven't run for 5 days due to anterior tibial tendonitis (sore shin/ankle) and I feel like someone has chopped off my right arm. I went out with my daughter on Monday evening it was so cold that we did a quick jog to the car and I could feel the pain in my shin.
I have two voices in my head one that says "Rest is best, let the shin heal and you will be able to run again and building up your distance gradually" the other one saying "A 5k won't hurt, just think how unfit you will be if you don't run and all that weigh you are piling on not doing any exercise"
Work is a nightmare and running is a good way to relieve the stress but no chance of that at the moment. Feeling a bit down about the whole thing. My sensible head is winning at the mo but not sure how long I can hold out. Big sigh !!!!!!
