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?
