This weekend, I’ll be participating in the YMCA-sponsored Spooky Tails & Trails 5K at Veteran’s Park in Hamilton, NJ. It will only be my second event that I’ve ever participated in and I’m a little nervous about the condition of my shins going into it. I seemed to have pushed myself a little beyond my capabilities the other night and some fairly mean-spirited shin splints followed.
This morning, I did a practice
run walk at the park, but had to limit my running to well…just about none as the pain was a little overwhelming. I’ve deciding to rest for a couple of days and possibly resume my normal walk/run routine on either Tuesday or Wednesday.
Urghh! Damn shin splints!
For the record, here are the results from this morning’s walk:
1km — 7m16s
1 mile — 12m35s
3 miles — 41m51s
5 km — 43m33s
