Shin Splint

Finally, after having to bear with the dull pain in my shins for more than 3 months, the x-ray finally revealed the true cause of my suffering: Shin Splint, known in the medical community as medial tibial stress syndrome (MTSS).

This is characterised by a pain that develops when you start running, disappear for a while when you are running, and then comes back with a vengence after you finish running.

Here are some more additional details on shin splints.

The MO has given me 1 month's excuse from physical training; hopefully the stress will heal by itself.

Meanwhile, my body is busy merging the muscles into the one giant lump that it once was.
