Small aches and pains keep following one after the other. Its just about having lotsa patience and getting one's fitness up & getting into a routine. But the good thing its that the shin split is not up again and its been replaced by some calf stiffness and ankle pain. So will rest my legs tomm and apply some pain relief gel. Might run on Saturday if things improve, but the Sunday run is definitely on, can't miss it.
Its actually not too much of a effort running with small injuries, as the pain is present only for the first 5 odd minutes, as after the muscles warm up the pain disappears. And ofcourse it comes back when you stop!! So its important to resist the temptation to run while not doing fine, else it can lead to serious injuries. So its all about knowing your body well and knowing when to stop or rest and this comes only with time.
Did about 5.5kms today at a slow pace, in 35mins. Which clearly indicates that I was not doing fine.
