I've read loads on here with regards to maybe having either a shin splint or stress fracture, I think it may be the former as it eases at times but can get very sore and has been like this since yesterday. The pain is at the bottom of my shin and when pressed is tender and a little hot, there is also a bit of redness to the skin. If I walk a distance the pain can get very sore and I have to stop, short walks and pottering about the house or at work are more bearable. The worrying thing is I have a wee 5k fundraising run coming up on the 23rd of this month and not doing it is not an option as I've now(just checked 5 mins ago)raised over £150 in donations for Perth Autism Support(my 9 yr old has autism). Can anyone advise what I shld do between now and then to ease this pain, taking into account I have to have a couple of wee runs before the event, Im not a professional runner and have only been running for around a year.
Please help as I cant let my friends or myself down.
