|This tapir doesn't like to taper|
My form wasn't pretty and my legs have been paying for it. I haven't had shin splints in ages, yet they reared their ugly head last week. I knew it was from the way I was running and not the mileage since I had backed off. I tried different shoes as well to see if that made any difference and it didn't. I wound up spending one day running in the sand to get some work in and save my legs from as much pounding as possible. It finally occurred to me what was going on....

Anyone else having issues during their taper? Any injury concerns? Anyone have the up to the minute weather forecast memorized like I do? Good luck to all my fellow marathoners! Let's have fun and remember that the first goal is to finish and stay out of the medical tent!
