Oh Shin Splints...how I loathe you!

This is why I never became a runner in high school.
 
Shin splints.
 
They are definitely the bane of my running existence.
 
I've had them since I've been running longer distances and amounts of time, but it wasn't horrible. They wouldn't hurt while I was running, but I'd feel a slight pain around my shin when I stopped.
 
The red 'shin splint pain' line should be on fire! That's what mine feels like!
 
After my amazing-ness on Sunday, stupidly, I didn't stretch, didn't ice and went about doing other things.
 
It came back to bite me in the butt.
 
Today's light run, turned into a really light run with lots of pain. I didn't even get 3 km (close though 2.84km). I had to walk the rest of the way home. When I stopped at lights it hurt to start moving again and I was noticeably limping. I was almost nauseous because of it.
 
So, I'm off running until the weekend, which sucks because come Saturday my race is one week away. I hate how much it sucks and the fact that I'm sidelined for a bit.
 
Anyone else deal with an injury just before a race?
I'm seriously panicking here!
