to sum it up, they suck! here we are about a week and a half away from the race and my shin splints are completely flared up and very painful! i've been icing and doing all the stuff that i'm supposed to do to get rid of these things, but they are rather annoying. keep your fingers crossed that they aren't too painful for the race otherwise you may see me hobbling across the finish, oh wait no you are going to see be hobble across the finish regardless!
i hope everyone else's training is going well! looking forward to SF!
