afternoon, PB, haven't spoken in, ooooooh, minutes!

shin splints is kind of a catch all term that encompasses more or less any shin pain.......

Hi jet setting friend!

so how do i know when i should stop and rest or just carry on?

see i'm so stupid i would just put up with the pain and run anyway, then probably wish i hadnt later!

however if i can run with a pain surely it cant be that bad IMHO

have you seen this article?
http://www.runnersworld.co.uk/news/article.asp?UAN=234

does this sound like what you are feeling?

I had them exactly as this description and tried to run through it. biiiiiiiig mistake. before long it was pain all the time and I couldn't walk without limping for about 6 weeks and couldn't run for 6 months. and even now years later I can't run more than about 3 or 4 times a week or they come back. sigh.

think there was an article in RW a couple of months ago about how to tell the diff between different injuries and what to do....

it's horrid though. so disheartening.

I know it sounds silly but........... can you hop when you have shin splints?

I used to skip a lot as part of my martial arts training and it gave me terrible shin splints in the end so i stopped. So in answer to your question, yes - you probably will feel pain if you 'hop'.
