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!

my physio warned me off calf guards. HIs take on it is why on earth would you restrict your blood flow. especially during a 100 mile race. I suspect your blood hasn't been flowing properly and had caused it.

Got something to say?
