The run on tuesday had some ill effects later. I tend to over pronate anyways so with the sore right little toe I think I was even more so, cause I had a hell of a shin splint the next day. I thought maybe it had something to do with the 5% incline, but only my right leg was sore.

My friend who is a PT suggested I lay off running until it stops hurting. She said to do other things to maintain endurance and strength.

Okay fine, BUT IT'S NOT THE SAME!!!

Shit! Shit! Shit!

I'm signed up for a 5k 11/20. There is time to heal. This will be ok. Right?

I haven't run since tueday and while it's not as sore it's not healed. If it feels right I may go out sunday. Screw that, I am running on sunday.

Miranda, my daughter actually turn's 10 tomorrow and were having a house party with 9 other little friends. If I don't get to run this weekend I may have to be commited.

You'll be fine for the 5k! Don't worry! It sounds like you will be having a fun weekend!

If you take it easy, you will definitely be OK by 11/20.
When your sitting on the couch watching TV roll a tennis ball under your foot, or a can, (like canned corn or any canned good). This is suppose to be good for the shins. But what do I know.....I've only been running since April!!!! Good Luck!

My trusted advisors told me that shin splints occur because those muscles need to be exercised.
good luck!
