Asics dont appear to manufacture these now, can anyone suggest a suitable replacement? They have been my perfect shoe so I would like to stick with the ASICS brand. I have trawled the internet for old stock but I am a size 9.5 and have not been successful
Hi I am being treated for shin splints and have had it in the past. If its severe then you are usually looking at a break of at least 4 to 6 weeks. You need to be stretching your calf and soleus. I have found that deep massages and acupuncture help. The hard part is being patient and not ramping up the mileage too quickly when you are back running. Good luck
You have every right to crack an ostomy joke! Its a big adjutsment and a sense of humour is essential to get through it.
Does anyoe have advice on getting through the night? I generally wake at 2 ish and then 4 to 430 and find it very difficult to get back to sleep following the 4:30 expedition. This means I am cream crackered by lunch time so have to go to bed for a kip in the afternoon. I have also been a temperamental so and so which is tough on friends and family!
Just to let you know that I tried my first run on the 1st November, 5 weeks after surgery and all went well. I did three further runs and a 7 mile race on Sunday. I was nervous but seemed to have got through it OK. I guess I have been lucky because I had keyhole surgery. The advice I had to wear lycra/tight fitting clothing to provide support is important.
