Owie, owie, owie...

Welp, the shin splints flared up pretty bad today, so I decided to bail out after 2.5 miles. Not too worried about it. After battling the PF, this is pretty minor league stuff. Still, it hurts, so I might take it easy with light running this weekend to let things settle down again.

Ran 2.5 miles @ 8:43/mile pace.
AHR/MHR - 137/160
Paved roads.
Slightly hilly.
Around 40 degrees, sunny.
Shorts, fleece jacket, short sleeved shirt.

How old are your shoes? If my shins hurt, they are the 1st thing to check but you knew that. Take care now.

Funny you mention that, Mike. The chiro-Art specialist I've been going to said the same thing. New shoes are on the agenda next week.
