I also learned some other great tips for dealing with shin splints from my runner friends:
- pick up newspaper using your toes
- air-write the alphabet with your toes
- rub ice cubes in circles on your shin
- drink more water

Saturday - Changed up my long run to not un-do the healing of my shin splint from the week of rest. Instead of a 12 miler, I ran 7 and then rode my bike the remaining 5. It was warm and humid, but I took it very easy and felt ok. Felt a little tightness in the evening, so I know I still have healing to do. #FFWallSit challenge day 5
Sunday - #FFWallSit challenge day 6
ZOOMA Cape Cod is only 3 weeks away and even though next week is Peak Week in my training program, I'm going to keep things easy and let my shin splint finish healing.
I'm also starting some fun fitness projects at school with the students and faculty this week. I'm looking forward to sharing more soon!
