Shins Happen

Ran a difficult 9 miles a week ago in mid-day heat and it did not feel good. I didn’t expect the warmth we had – and the lack of shade along my route didn’t help. I ended up slightly dehydrated. Yesterday was a simple 6 mile run, but now the right shin is beginning to flame up. This injury has hit me every year for the past three marathons. With an eleven mile run coming up this Sunday, I hope the pain subsides quickly.
