It might be something completely different, but I did the SDW100 a couple of months ago, and afterwards the bottom of my shins were very very tender (they were the most hurty thing of all). I think my (obviously completely unsound) internet-based diagnosis was something about the muscles swelling more than their surrounding sheaths wanted them to. They calmed down after a couple of days. Well done on the sub-24 and second lady!
