Shin Splints Redux?

I'm a little sore in the shins again, even though I have been very diligent about the ibuprofen regime and stretching after the runs. My guess is the new pace is gradually wearing me down with the increased pounding.

The pain is not acute but more general and just a general ache. If I take a day off it's gone by the afternoon of the day after the most recent run, so that's a really good sign, I think. But still, it's a past problem that will impact my training if I can't get rid of it.

I'm not really sure what to do other than rest a bit. Luckily I was planning to do that as I approached the structured training sessions anyway.

I'll have to watch this closely.
