Okay, I'm not sure if you remember me posting about it or not, but I've started the 30 Day Shred before and made it to Day 12 or so. I ended up stopping because my shins were bothering me too much. This time around I started out wearing shoes, then Meagan suggested trying without, and that seemed to keep my feet from cramping.
Well, now my shins are starting to hurt big time. I'm not sure if it's my shin bones, or not. What seems to hurt the most is the muscles to the inside of my fibula. I looked it up...something like the solerus muscle? The butt-kicks are what aggrivates it the most.
I'm really determined to finish the 30 Day Shred this time, and I'm seeing a difference after 7 days. I'm not trying to sound like a wuss, but I'm trying to figure out the best way to do it without potentially hurting myself. Should just I tough it out, skip the high impact cardio, take tylenol/ibuprofen, ice my shins? Will wearing shoes VS not wearing shoes make a difference?
Sorry if I'm overwhelming you with lots of questions. I'm just a little frustrated.
Lol... I know my shin area hurt but it really was just the muscles around the shins that I hadn't worked before since its been forever since I worked out - it did ease up and go away after a week or so.
I'm working through it, and the pain wasn't as bad the last 2 nights as it was Friday night.
I have good shoes...they're just old. How often should you get new shoes? I went to the Good Feet Store and got the shoes they suggested (New Balance 1011). I know they were atleast $80. Maybe I'll see about getting some new ones. I was just trying to make those last as long as possible.
