Take me out, coach

I finally decided to start skipping some mid-week runs. Stupid Dutch has been giving me a lot of advice about recovering from runs (ice baths, rest, drugs), and I usually just blow him off but he finally convinced me that running while my shins are still hurting is not a good idea. Because he's been so supportive, I should probably refer to him with a more respectful title so you may see me referring to him as Coach Stupid Dutch from time to time.

I am the Queen of Shin Splints. Trust me on this...you need to stop running for a while. Just a week or so. Walk if you must, but keep it really slow. Or use the bike - that doesn't hurt.

Ice and drugs help, but rest is the best way to recover.
