Ha! Stupid legs rebelled again and the lateral shin splints rose from the dead and came out to play. Not nice! I had to stretch every couple minutes to ease away some of the lactic acid. Eventually, around the 20 minute mark, the pain went away but my Achilles tendons were tight. A girl can't win! I kept going and finished my 3.4 miler in 28:12. Not too bad for stopping so gal'darn much!
|Yay! I'm done! And sweaty! And smelly! And red!|
|Don't be jealous of my grillz!|
This lactic acid buildup is cray-cray. I'm not sure what's going on, but I had this problem last summer when I was training for the half marathon I ended up not being able to do because of an injury (more on that later). I've been drinking a lot of tea lately, maybe that's a factor?!
What's the worst exercising injury or pain you've ever had? How did you deal with it?
