I had to cut my run on Tuesday short because my shin started hurting again. It’s pretty much been fine since, but I haven’t run on it since.Yesterday was a cross training day and today is a rest day.
Since it only hurt towards the end of my run on Tuesday I’m probably going to try an easy run tomorrow and I probably won’t go long on Saturday. I’m just really hoping it needed a few days of rest and I won’t have to take anymore time off…
I’m kinda wondering if my tight quads are my problem. I’ve noticed that every time this happens my quads are super tight. I see a lot more foam rolling in my future.
I also wonder if actually warming up would help. Haha don’t get me wrong, I always use the first 10 minutes of my run to slowly ease into things, but maybe that’s just not cutting it? I guess I’d better add some dynamic stretching in before I hit the pavement.
Looks like I’ve got some experimenting to do!
Do you have tight quads?
Have they ever caused shin pain?
Do you warm up before you run, or do you use the first mile or two of your run as a warm up?
