    For those interested in a new exercise challenge, rumor has it that May 1st may be a date of interest. I'm still trying to figure out a good way to do this, though.

    Personal update: I forgot to mention that I moved onto the treadmill last week. I alternated 1 minute walking with 1 minute jogging for 4 minutes, so it wasn't anything too fancy. Truthfully, though, I've been slacking a bit other than that.

    May 1? Hurrah!! I'm looking forward to it! Is there any way that we can make it easier to organize, maintain, etc? You've done such a great job with this last one.

    Well, I'm using the lessons and feedback from the last one to try and improve this one while reducing the effort on my part. I'm intentionally trying to make this less work on me!

    My thoughts on the next challenge:
    1. Participation is based on submitting a weekly report. Like with the last challenge, they can be as quick or as in-depth as you want to make them.
    2. After someone fails to report for X number of weeks, they are out. X is to be determined. I'm thinking 2 or 3.
    3. I will only PM someone after they have missed a week, in order to inform them of how many more weeks they have left.
    4. Participants will get a special user name color ala The Gauntlet challenges. (Thank you Trinity, Jennifer, and mods for your approval and help with this! Thank you Kyuuei for the idea.) The color has not been determined. I'm open to suggestions. Blue, Red, and Gold are already taken.

    So no keeping track of cheats. This will alleviate the work on my end and, honestly, they weren't that popular anyway.

    Oh, and everything above is subject to change, but I'm feeling pretty good about it. If someone has any suggestions, please do share.

    Painful. They get worse the more your shins/feet are punished, running on hard surfaces is especially bad. There are different causes, mine were caused by Pes Planus (an impressive new word I just learnt *pride* basically flat feet) which due to a bunch of reasons lead to inflammation, the more inflamed it became, the weaker the muscle became, the more inflamed it became [and repeat], it was a cycle that could not end without rest and orthotics. Problem was it wasn't immobilising, so I could still run and play sports, which I did, it was just really painful at the end of a game and would not desist until I took 2 years off all sports.

    When I'd run my fingers down my shins the inflammations would be painful and raised, massaging them was especially painful. Anti-inflammatory are supposed to help, they prolly did but they didn't take away much pain.

    If you think you have Shin Splints, get them checked out as if the cause is the same as mine you will need orthotics, sooner rather than later is better as my feet have also caused problems with my pelvis and therefore lower back.


    Err, forgot, also tingling, that's what it felt like, I didn't get it so much in my feet (IIRC) as I did my actual shins but tingling is often present.

    I don't know what's wrong.

    I don't know what pain is like. I think I'm kind of stupid in that respect.

    Any help on like, where? Like something is bolting through about where tall athletic socks stop on my legs, far before anything else on my leg hurts or feels like it's been properly "exercised".

    Rule of thumb, if you have shooting pain get it checked out, a sports physio would be best. But fyi I would get a shooting pain.

    I'd generally wear a shin compression wrap or calf sleeve while exercising, it alleviated some pain but it still hurt like hell. This calf sleeve is covering where it hurt, draw a line from about the inside of the tag down and that where my shin was inflamed:

    This is definitely from the side (outside in), not from the front. It's not hurting now.

    I don't know how I would define a shooting pain. I mean, I managed to walk all the way home, didn't I?

    If you are feeling better now, it's likely you just over exerted yourself (especially during that sprint) and inflamed something or other. Usually, if you ice your shins and take it easy for a few days, your leg recovers.

    If it continues on, then seeing a doctor sooner rather than later is a good thing. Likely, this is related to your trip and the mad sprint you posted about earlier.

    Hmm... If it's not sore in the below areas then it's prolly something other than shin splints.



    Not a physio so dunno but if it's sore again I'd suggest ice and rest, if it persists get a second opinion
