I have taken the better part of a month off to let my shin completely heal. I haven't ran one time! The last few times I tried to start back running it only took one or two runs before my shin would start hurting. This time I decided to wait till my leg was not even a thought, as in no pain what so ever.
Yesterday as it was raining about 4 inches and killing all the trails I took a look at my road bike and decided I would rather run. No kidding right then and there I realized my shim had not hurt in several days. Next thought was I am going running! Not that I don't like the road bike, I just don't like road biking.
