It’s been a rather unfortunate run of events for my poor legs. If you are a regular reader, you may remember that I was training for the Hastings Half Marathon in the earlier part of the year. Then I got shin splints. And they were Very Bad. Rest and ice was the order of the day, and I missed the half marathon. Waiting by the finish line at two and a half hours didn’t really help my mood, as that was the time I was aiming for.
Then over a month ago, my poor shins got very bruised thanks to Moron in the Mondeo, who decided to drive into us. Thus has ended by very short running career.
But I recently out the reason of my shin splints. Apparently my pelvis tilts too far forward, so run on my toes. Ah-ha! I shall be starting pilates very soon to sort that out.
I don’t think I’m cut out to be a runner. I’m getting a fold up bike this weekend. Maybe I’ll fare better as a cyclist.
