L Lower Leg, Shin Splints

2006-11-15 – 2006-11-21

Grade: 1

15 November
Sore lower left leg but seems to be to the side of the bone. Sore when running. Like shin splints but not 100% sure.
18 November
Don't think injury is shin splints. At gym on treadmill noticed that left foot turning out on footstrike. Concentrated on placing foot straight which resulted in no pain.
20 November
Ran slowly for 1200m concentrating on placing foot correctly. Only very slight pain.

Caused by poor left foot position on placement.
Concentrate on corect body position while running
