No matter how slowly I go, running on a harder surface than a dirt road causes pain in my shin. Or better, I think that the harder surface makes me work Tibialis Anterior in a way it doesn't want to, causing pain in my shin.

don't know. but I do know that in my current set of circumstances, I'll never run a good road race again. sad, eh?
