Default Running on Shin Splints...

I get shin splints, if you donít get them then I canít describe the pain, if you do get them I needn't bother.
Anyway I found that running on a treadmill that has elevation adjustment and setting the deck to a high elevation it helps in preventing shin splints.
The foot doesnít have to pivot forward as much.
Also good stretching exercises helps too.
-Hope this helps. Pete.

you can also make your shins stronger which can help avoid them. sit in a chair and leave your foot on the ground and tap the front of your foot on the ground. after a little bit you will start to feel your shins working. do that often and that wil lmake and keep your shins strong

I am trying this as I speak (well, type), and I can feel it!! Good sug., Monsta! Also, I'm not sure, but it may help to stretch them immediately after running. Also, I'd try running on a treadmill-it absorbs a lot of the impact imparted on your legs, helping to avoid splints all together. Or, you could try doing exercises that work the tibialis anterior- the muscle on the front of the leg. I hope it helps.

All good suggestions.

Also, don't up your mileage or time running too much too soon.

^^ I couldnt agree more, many people make that mistake and end up with leg injuries, you should always work your way into cardio, both distance and intensity wise.
I don't do this for my family, my friends, women, accolades, pride, or ego. I do it for me and no one else, its just part of who I am.
