Shin Splints Stink

My race is Nov 12, I was up to 10 miles and ready to go up to 11, but...

Shin splints struck and they struck hard!!!

As of now I only have them in my right leg and the pain is very mild but I know if I don't watch it, this minimal throbbing pain will turn excruciating in a heartbeat.

I rode a bike set up on a stationary trainer for 30 mins today and my tush just couldn't take anymore.  I am dying to find something I can do to baby my shin and still get a good cardio workout.

HELP!!! What do you do to cross train when injured and can't run?

  1. Underwater running!! When I worked at the pool a LOT of runners came there to swim and water run when they were injured or during the off season!
