- Funny little lump on shin after running
Ten minutes in to jogging tonight and my leg started aching quite a bit. Right down the front of my shin. Stopped and rubbed my leg and there’s a little pea sized lump there, sort of outside/side front . It seems to have started to go down since I have stopped.
Legs didn’t feel good at all before this, felt tight and heavy. Any ideas?Posted 5 years agosurferMember
Sounds like shin splints. Can become a fracture but normally very painful over a few weeks and unmistakeable throbbing you would have to be an idiot to continue running ( :oops:)
If the pain is there at the start of your run, disappears during the run then hurts afterwards its probably shin splints (generic term) if so you have to stop, it wont go away until you do unfortunately.

I was that idiot and yes they did lead to fractures, lots of them (young,arrogant para recruit, it’s just a bit of pain attitude).
Fractured my legs 3 times in 18 months before being medically discharged.
Anyway, the moto is if it really hurts STOP.
One day I will do as I preach.Posted 5 years ago
