First run after a week off with shin splints....done! It was definitely a success. First, I'll say I have the best trainer ever. Casey met me and a couple others at the Campbell Community Center track with a workout in hand. Ran a total of about 5 miles at a relatively slow pace, and my taped-up shins managed to hold up. Hopefully this progress continues! You'll be proud to know that I even upgraded to a REAL CVS ice pack (I've been using a bag of Trader Joe's brand frozen corn for 3 weeks)!
I have to attribute a lot of my progress to this video...I've been taping my shin with KT tape for a week now, and it has really helped! Check it out!
