Ive been suffering from shin splints for about 6 months now, and its taken until recently for me to give in and take some rest. I've had about 2 weeks off and I'm gradually building up my training again now, begining with three 2.7 mile runs a week, hoping to complete a 1/2 marathon in may. Hoping taking it slow will prevent futher injury.
I run with compression socks on now and it helps a lot, I also sleep in them and sometimes wear them the next day too to help with aches. I also apply ibuproben gel after a run to help stop inflamation.
I'm really hoping that this stops my legs getting any worse. Has any one got anymore advice?
