I am struggling with running lately.

I am going to admit it here.  I think I have shin splints.

Here is a picture of the area where I am in pain

Area of shin splints

The pain is in my left leg and anterior.

I can run about two miles before I have to walk some.  Monday night I was able to get a five-mile run in.  But it wasn’t all running.  I had to walk a few times to stretch my leg.

Yesterday I felt pretty good, I did a lot of walking and stair climbing at work and my leg didn’t hurt too bad.  So I went to the gym again last night.

I could hardly get half a mile in before the pain was unbearable.  I mean bad.

I walked at a faster pace and raised the incline on the treadmill to still get some movement in.

OK.  So maybe I should have taken a rest last night.  But I thought I could do it.  I plan on going running again tonight and I will see how it goes.

I found this colorful diagram on how to tape for shin splints.

I have never taped for an injury before.  I am pretty skeptical about if it will work on not.

Here is a video that show how to tape shin splints.

I am going to try it and check in again to let you know how it went.


As I have stated before, I am planning on running a half marathon at the end of August, so this pain needs to go away!
