So yeah, if any of you have an extra pair of shins you're not using, could you please mail them to me? I'll pay postage :D.
I guess I should be happy my quads and hamstrings are feeling so amazing, and I am happy about that. However, the pain in my shins were back on this morning's run. I'm icing, advil'ing, and praying. We'll see what happens on Friday's run.

On another note, I got a massage last night (she focused on trying to work on the knots in my shoulders AND legs). I didn't know you COULD get knots in your legs but apparently I have done it. I'm amazing. I need to stretch more.
This post seems really negative, but i really am happy with my progress, pain is just a little discouraging. But like I said yesterday at least it's changing spots rather than one consistent spot. :(
Oh and apparently the following poses are supposed to strengthen your shins and help with shin splits (so says my personal trainer). Hold them until you either tire in your lower legs or you completely lose balance (I usually lose balance first). I will definitely be doing them...
p.s. if you decide to try them try to find a website explaining exactly how to do it - I had my trainer sitting there telling me where I should be pushing and whatnot so it's not exactly self-explanatory from the pics...
