I walked home and then I did Jillian Michael's No More Trouble Zones. Then I stretched and of course ended my workout with my ISO 100 protein shake and put my legs up and iced my shins. I noticed some shin pain earlier this week so I am trying to be proactive and prevent shin splints. I did some specific stretching and put the ice on for 15 minutes after my workout. The ice is a major help and the pain is definetly less now.
There will always be challenges when you are working out but the important thing to remember is always to stretch before and after a workout. Also make sure you are eating healthy and getting enough protein and even some carbohydrates to keep your energy. I like to follow with the ISO-100 shake because it is again as I have said in the past the only protein drink out there that has no fat and no sugar. It is only 2 Weight Watchers points per serving.
