Well... it's not. I know anyone reading this is giving me the classic sarcastic duh-der! I also knew that my whole 1 year endeavor wouldn't be easy either.
I just wish my shin would stop hurting. :-P
I lost weight last week which made me happy, but I had to lower my workout intensity this week. That is frustrating. I actually like working out. I love the endorphins and I love the feel of accomplishment. I just don't like the pain in my lower leg lol.
So to help it feel better, I took the weekend off. It hurt Monday during my run, so I took yesterday off. Tonight it was good until about half through the body jam class. *sigh*
Tomorrow I'm going in for my weight training and then I am going to get back in the pool for a while. I'm starting to think I need some pool time... just stay off the leg for awhile.
To my running friends... how do you deal with shin splits? Is there anything I can do to relieve the pain in my right shin? Is there a magic trick I can do to fast forward a few weeks and be more fit today? ;)
So... tomorrow... weights, pool, and farmer's market veggies... :-D
Maybe it isn't so bad after all.
