Gave myself the past few days off from running because of the shin splints. They've gone down but are still there pretty prominently. One thing I think that is helping is foam rolling my calves. Definitely discovered some big knots in both muscles.
Despite the splints, I still did a portion of my short run today barefoot and the other portion in heelless shoes. Begrudgingly, I may do the next run or two in regular shoes to give the splints a bit of a reprieve, but I'll most likely be taking tomorrow off as well since I have grad school after I'm done teaching.
