So, training for first marathon, best time of my life. Been diagnosed with shin splints and have been rehabilitated back into training. Foam rolling, icing, taping, gradual mileage build up. Shin splints (which was in the ankle) coped incredibly well with management. Probably build-up of mileage too much…went from 10.5, 13 to 15.7. I was running 15 before I was injured. Physio did say that taping can risk the pain being transferred elsewhere. I now have a very sore tight calf muscle after my runs. It was too sore to roll out last night. Luckily I’m seeing my physio again tomorrow. I’m just ranting because I have complete envy for anyone who is doing all their runs, without any problems. Has anyone else suffered exactly the same….my ankle is fine now….but calf muscle….well it’s just another irritant. Do I need to reduce my marathon training to 3 days a week instead of 4? Won’t be ideal. So training for first marathon, most frustrating time of my life!
