Just after a little advice
This is my first ever post and am sad to say it is about that most talked about subject of shin pain. I have been running for a little over a year now, completed two half marathons and a full. I have never had shin pain before but after recently moving house, I know find my self training on a rather undulating route and wondered whether this could be a cause? Just wondered if anyone knew of any link between lots of hilly runs and the chances of experiencing shin pain?
I have had gait tested and am training in relatively new shoes with mileage of less than 100 miles, and have not increased my training mileage each week by over 10%. Any advice would be great.
Thanks for your reply. I will certainly try a flatter route. the surface has actually got softer as I am now able to add in a bit of trails. I really need to do the hillwork as I am intending to run the rather hilly Giants Head Marathon in June and have no access to a gym so use hills for my strength work. So is there anything I can do when running downhill to reduce the risk of injury?
