Doin' the Right Thing

Due to my new-found splintiness, I decided to not run again today, keep the peg up and iced and pick things back up tomorrow.

Hopefully it's the right plan.

@LosBee has me on 600 milligrams of ibuprofen to alleviate the inflammation. I've read a lot of recommendations to not take NSAIDs for running pain and shin splints, but I think that is mostly to avoid masking the pain so you can run on an injury. I ain't doin' that—I'm masking the pain, fighting the inflammation and eating ice cream on the couch while I watch NFL.

Very low-risk injury situation.

Back tomorrow with a write-up of a good run. Hopefully.
