Foot Turning, Shin Splints and changing the stride.


So, ever since my long run in my marathon-training attempt, I have suffered from some shin splint pain on the left shin after a run.  This week has been true to form, with the pain returning as my running has.

Last nights run and ponderings on speed. Plus, the 100 up challenge!

A wonderful evening run, and a nice way to start the day.
