Why ??? after struggling for so many miles and miles of, hard slog, road ponding to complete my first marathon in Brighton, the pain of shin splints and blisters, do i say NEVER AGAIN, then feel the need to sign up to event again next year after shin splints, blisters on toes,and fatigue, Insane us runners..!!!
I got posterior shin splints(inside leg) 3 weeks before the Brighton marathon, and ran it after taking 2 Ibruprofen. Physios advise was to do stretching exercises to strenghten arch, hamstrings, quads, and calfs. All on youtube if unsure. Also avoid tarmac, and find a trail for a few runs, as tarmac impact will worsen the condition. 2 weeks after completing marathon and shinsplints have gone. Hope this helps..!!
