Training for a race can really take a toll on your body.  As the miles get longer and the challenge gets harder it’s important not to neglect the signs of fatigue to prevent future injuries.  I’m on my second week of training for my fourth half marathon and have injured my (medial tibial stress syndrome) also known as “shin splint.”  If you’re a runner and have suffered from this injury you know how annoying this can be. The thought of altering your training to heal an injury can be frustrating and can leave you feeling unmotivated. Since running is my favorite form of exercise Its been really tough not to lace up my shoes and hit the pavement or the treadmill.  I’ve been icing each leg for 10 minutes each (yes I’m using my frozen hydration pack) and foam rolling each night before bedtime.  If you have any other methods other than what I’m using to cure this injury please feel free to share and comment down below.
