Had some shin pain after a pretty hard speed session, did a 19k long run the day after (spoiler: that was a terrible idea) and it hurt again, so I took it easy for the rest of the week and weekend to let it sort itself out. Tried a gentle jog to the gym this morning but it was immediately back.
Anyone else had shin splints and how long has it taken you to recover? Any dos and don'ts? Coach has prescribed a week of total rest which makes sense, even though I'll be climbing the walls by Friday.
