Since I’ve been having shin splints recently, I made a chart of my running activity to see what was causing it. It looks like I went from running around 1 mile/week (during the winter) suddenly up to 11 miles/week. In the 7 days leading up to feeling pain in my legs, I actually ran 15.8 miles.
So, clearly, I need to ramp up my running more slowly, maybe at a rate of one or two miles per week.
In the last seven days, I’ve run 3 miles. I’ll probably try to do one more run this week, perhaps on Saturday, for two miles (this can be my “long” run).
Yesterday I ran a mile at a 7:07 pace, which wasn’t bad for me. That’s on Strava.
