I made an earlier post asking for advice on how to deal with shin splints and what to do prior to my OASC.
Unfortunately I am still suffering from them and I have actually developed them on my other leg. I have my fitness test for P3 entry in 2 weeks today but I don't think I should have any problems passing it as I can use a cross trainer or go swimming between now and then. However after the fitness test there will not be enough time between passing the fitness test and starting training (with all the running in between) to heal.
Should I tell my AFCO of my situation and potentially delay my application until they are healed?

Injuries like this are a part of the process, you're not the first to have something happen to them and won't be the last - they know this and will be perfectly ok with you putting a hold on it.
After all, if you're unlikely to pass the test why waste their time and yours?
Call them up and tell them, it'll be fine.
