For a while I've been having pain in my legs. The pain occurs exactly between my calf muscle and my bones. I feel this pain when I jog or run. Sometimes long walks also trigger this pain. I haven't been training or played badminton since my last LIBA workshop and as it is only two days to go for my next LIBA workshops I thought I will go for jogging and prepare myself for the LIBA weekend. I went for jogging with my friend and after 5-10 minutes into the jogging I started to feel the pain in my legs. Initially the pain was bearable but the pain gradually started to increase and after 15 mins I couldnâ€™t stand it anymore. It was so painful and it started to paralyse my legs. The pain is on both my legs right between my calf and the bones. It was so painful I couldn't even walk properly. My friend asked me which part in my legs are painful and explained to him where the pain is. Finally he said "You can kiss your LIBA weekend good bye" I was bloody surprised and I told him its just pain probably because of lack of exercise and asked why did you say that. He replied it could probably be "Shin Splint" and he advised me to go and see a doctor. Two days to go for my LIBA workshop and this is the last thing I ever wanted to hear from him. What the heck is "Shin Splint?" I'm really disappointed with myself. I'm disappointed because I hate to give all kind of excuses to the coach. He is going to tell all of us to run for warming up and I'll be the only one there saying to the coach I can't run because of blah blah blah. I did the same thing in my last workshop and I will be doing it again this weekend. He is going get annoyed and sick with all my excuses. He may think I'm not dedicated and just a time waster. oh well I have to face this situation this weekend. I just have to be brave and give my best. There is another workshop by end of August and that will give me a solid one month time to get fit and prove that I love badminton and I'm dedicated as everyone else who attend the workshop.
