I have had shin splints for well over 2 years now!! I have an appointment with the physio in January. But I'm training for a half marathon and need to keep going... I do quite badly underpronate to which I tried to correct my foot strike and ended up damaging the tendons in my ankle ... So having rested for two weeks now I feel ready to get back to training ... on the plus side the rest has help my shins also ... I am going to try minimalist / barefoot runnig. I was thinking about get a pair of NB minimus zero. Anyone tried or know much about these?
Luke... to my knowledge that too, can be classed as shin splints... it depends on how the foot pronates as to where the problem will flare in the shin..
