However a PULLED muscle is different. If you've actually pulled the muscle as opposed to "my muscles are sore," it's damaged and requires rest to heal.
If you actually have shin splints, the best thing you can do is wait for the inflammation to go down. Working out through shin splints can make them worse and lead to more serious injury (hello stress fractures.) I kept running through shin splints during my first half marathon and it was a few months of no running at all post-half before my legs got back to normal.
Thank you! It's definitely not soreness like I felt from the first few workouts. That was a good kind of sore! This is painful. I think it was maybe the jump rope motion that I was doing... that one always kind of bothered me and when I tried to do it today, that's what hurt, so I dunno what I did. I think I did pull a muscle, and it's in the shin area, from what I was reading online. Tomorrow I may try to work out but do a couple of the moves from the 30 day shred modified. And we have an elliptical, which is low impact on the knees, etc, so maybe I'll do that instead.
