End of the road
After trying some practice walks in Anglesey this weekend, I can’t do more than a couple of miles without pain. I’ll keep up the stretches and exercises but the only real cure for shin splints is rest. My physio tells me that it could be months before the injury is healed, so I’m afraid I’ll have to call a halt to things for the time being. I’m still determined to do the walk but I think it will be too late to complete this year, so I’ll start again next May.
Thank you everyone for the support and encouragement you’ve given to me and the donations made to the charities . I’m sorry only to complete such a short distance, it’s not what I wanted but they are very worthy causes and will use the amounts raised to good effect.
