Ive done what I thought were the right things. Increased my mileage slowly, no speed work, kept off pavement and asphalt, iced my legs after almost every run, yet my left shin aches. Its not a serious pain mind you, but when you have had this problem before, any pain makes you take notice. I have taken a couple days off so far, done extra stretching, and it feels a little better. I think I will run a couple easy miles (with my fingers crossed), just to see how it feels.
Happy New Year !!!
