So I'm not sure if "shin split" is the correct terminology, but since last Thursday, and growing in intensity, I've had rather sharp splitting pains down my shins. I'm pretty sure what caused it, which involved heel-striking in my Vibrams in an attempt to keep up with my new walking partner, but I'm not sure what to do to fix them. I've heard ice, but also heat. Massages with a tennis ball, cold water baths, etc.
Today was supposed to be my sprint day, which I do on the stationary bike due to bad knees and too much weight still. Am I better off resting it for a while? If so, how long is appropriate? The weather is finally decent, and I got my exercise/diet back in line to start the weight coming off again. I hate to have to put it on hold
