Yes that's right! I have a major issue with a shin splint in my right shin. I think I need a different style of shoe. I really like my Gravity running shoes from Newton, but I think I should go more with a lightweight racing shoe, which they also make.
It isn't the best idea to switch right before a race, but I think a couple of weeks is enough time to make it happen.
Training is going well. I am logging tons of laps in the pool, which is helping me pinpoint any issues that I have with form. This coming Tuesday, my form is being assessed by a very experienced competitive swimmer. I hope that goes well.
Transition training is definitely in my sights for this coming week.
Speaking of Transition, I have recently purchased a Specialized Transition to get me to the next level in competition.
My crazy quest for IRONMAN
