on monday and wednesday i had appointments with venske (if you need a chiropractor and you live in lake country THIS IS THE GUY!) and he basically told me to shit or get off the pot. he made a very good point that i have to run sometime and my fear isn't going to help me any because without running i have no way of knowing if anything is better or not. so... friday i ran. it went surprisingly and pleasingly well! unfortunately, my shin splint reared it's ugly little angry head but otherwise the run was short but a huge success! so successful, in fact, i decided to repeat it
first, i taped my shin based on some information i found on the internets which proved to be most helpful. no pain in the shin at all when running which was amazing and quite surprising if i do say so myself. so surprising that i made a little video telling y'all what i did so that you too can see if you can run pain free by trying this taping method. one problem solved.
