I have developed what I think is shin splints in my right leg after a few days tough training (20 miler + 2 x 8 miles with tough speedwork over 5 days).
My shin was very painful for 3 days and I was unable to walk properly. After using an ice pack for a few days the pain has eased somewhat but the problem has not cleared up completely.
I am supposed to be running the New York Marathon on 3rd Nov and am desparate to get back to training asap having already missed 5 days.
Anyone got any advice on what I should do. Should I continue to rest or start running again even though I may be in some pain? Should I be taking any supplements? I have tried Kuta but don't think it has helped much. I have also heard Calcium Ascorbate can help but haven't tried it. Any advice/thoughts would be really appreciated
