As you can see from the Thread title I am still getting shin splints after trying so many things. I was hoping that someone out there may have had the same problem and would have some advise for me. Here are the things I have tried so far:
I have had my running analysed for specialist shoes. This doesn't appear to have made any difference.
I ice pack my shins after every run. This seems to help but the shin splints still come back eventually
I do 3 sets of 10 (holding for 10 seconds) calf raises and toe raises every day. ( I have only been doing this for a week or two now so I realise it will probably take longer to see any effects)
After all this it still feels like I am putting unnecessary strain on my shins. I worry that there is something fundamentally wrong with the way that I run, in which case all of the above things I am doing are pointless. Has anyone had the same problem with shin splints? Can anyone suggest something else I can try?
Ratzer, thanks for your comment. I guess at the end of the day everyones bodys are different and can put up with different strains, and as I have problems with my back from time to time I should probably be carefull with this one. Thanks
PSC - thanks for the warning! Wouldn't have wanted to be behind you in that class!
