I'm doing my first marathon this year in London. The last 3 weeks I've been having pain in my shins. It's nothing that bad just like a stinging sensation. I did up my mileage a little and had new trainers about a fortnight previous to this. I've rested for 1 week and then pick up some mileage over 2 weeks. It appears to be less painful apart from left shin where there is a sharp pain just on the outside of my left shin bone. The pain doesn't occur when I run just comes and goes when I'm resting. I've been icing the area quite alot. Can anyone tell me if they think it ok to keep training. My concern is that I can't really afford to take much time off with the marathon being 11 weeks away.
