It would appear that my shin splints have made a reappearance. My freaking left shin hurt so bad today that I had to cut my long run short. I only made it two miles and by then I was basically limping along, so I knew I needed to stop.
My shoes are still good plus I just got a new pair yesterday so I can start rotating pairs again. I haven’t done a crazy increase in milage or intensity lately. So I took to the internet and found that cambered roads can cause shin splints. Makes sense, as I’ve already had IT band issues in my left leg thanks to the freaking cambered roads…
I’m starting to think running around my neighborhood all of the time isn’t an option for me anymore. Back when I ran exclusively on a paved trail I hardly ever got hurt. Cambered roads are literally going to be the death of me. ☹️
I guess I’m going to pout a little, then spend the day icing/stretching/foam rolling my leg. Aaaand I suppose I’ll have to take some time off from running. Ewww.
