Stay off it! Running while you still have shin splints can lead to damaged muscles and incredibly bad pain. Keep icing in short bursts, take an anti-inflammatory, and rest it. For more really great info, read this.Comments
Shopping + running = great day

This is a leg appreciation post.
My legs came from not being able to run 2 minutes straight to running 15k in 90 minutes and I just don’t appreciate them enough.
Thank you legs, sorry for hating you for so long. You’re awesome.
I’d quite like a tumblr running buddy. Preferably someone who isn’t a massive athlete as I’m still fairly crap as it’s only my third week and I’ve only just managed to do 2k in one go. Someone to keep me motivated really.
Anyone want to be this person’s running buddy via Tumblr?
If you had 10 days left to raise $175 more to meet the charity donation requirements for a marathon entry, what would you do that you might not have tried yet?
How about… have people reblog this link? ;)
The Eowyn Challenge is a very, very old fitness challenge that a group of LotR-loving friends made before the premiere of the final movie in 2003. It challenges people to travel (walk, run, bike, swim, etc.) the distances travelled in either The Lord of the Rings or The Hobbit. It’s a really neat idea for any LotR buffs out there!
So, the color run. Super fun! It was raining, and people in Tempe/Phoenix Arizona are wimps, so a bunch of people didn’t show up. But it was still pretty full, and awesome!
I went with best friend V and Boyfriend!
a couple photos from before the run.
If the color run ever comes to your city, definitely try it out! It was so fun! This was Boyfriend’s first 5k, and he really loved it. I think I might be able to convince him to try others now :)
