ow my legs...

So basically I thoroughly apologize for being such a lame blogger these last few weeks, things as always are a little nuts. I think it comes down to overscheduling. Danny is working a lot these days and then I work on days that he's home and I am also playing softball (which has been a total blast) But I did a dumb thing and started excersizing way to heavily, running and such without working up to it and now I am having major shin splint issues. I go back to the doc next week and hopefully I don't have fractures. At my last visit I was told to stay off of my legs for 4 weeks and so I have been taking it easy but they just aren't getting better and it hurts all of the time. Maybe it's just that I am getting old! So I am out on the bench for another week and I won't get to play in our tournament tomorrow but I am going to be the best book keeper/ cheerleader you have ever seen! GO K9's ( c'mon our sponsor is a dentist what do you expect!)

What, are you doing hurdles these days? You are a crazy girl! Hope your legs feel better, shin splints are a woof.

I'm sorry - that doesn't sound very fun. At least you have an excuse - huh? Sometimes that's a GOOD thing :)

I have this issue a lot too (with shin splints . . . not working out too hard), and what helps me is new shoes, especially Adidas with adeprene in both the heel and toe of the shoe. I've had shin splints with Nikes, New Balance, and every other shoes, minus Adidas. The adeprene is the kicker though . . . and it has to be in both spots. Even when my mileage is up on my Adidas, I start getting my shin splints again, and that's when I know it's time to get new ones! Good Luck!

I swear that if my body could keep up I would look like a million bucks. It's annoying when you have to suffer for getting excercise.
