Back in the saddle again...

Well I decided to try running this morning fter 2 weeks of nothing. I may have jumped the gun a little to soon.. It was kinda painful the whole way. The first couple miles it was pretty bad. I was kinda doing a limp run i'm sure I looked funny the way I was running. After a couple miles into running it loosened up some but it still hurt a bit. It feels as though the shin splint has spread throughout the whole bottom part of my leg. It kinda hurts all over.. I had to stop a couple times and walk for about a half of a block to let my knee and leg rest.. After walking a couple mins my knee would feel better but not the leg. I managed to get in 4.34 miles walking about 1-1 1/2 miles of it so not to bad. I came home and decided to hop on my bike and me and my dad decided to go hit some trails. I think we ended up going about 9-10 miles. My legs were burning but it was a good ride. And it didnt hurt my leg or knee to much to do it. I think i will just bike tomorrow and maybe try running again sat and just try going only 3-4 miles again.. maybe I can slowly get back into it until my knee and leg feel better.
