I known there’s is about a million shin spilt questions on here but her I go.
I am currently suffering with shin splits on my right leg lower down on the inside.
I have been icing them and resting I have been swimming and doing weight things that don’t hurt them.
The only problem is I have a race next weekend and I am desperate to get out and run. Plus I don’t want to lose fitness.
The shin splints seemed to go after I switched trainer to Merrell Bareaccess about a 6 weeks ago and I have been running fine on them. Hoverver I did a race to weeks ago (a 10k) and was fine after but went for a small run the day after.
Its been over a week and I have not ran but I can still feel my shins when I walk. I am a bit bothered now as I have some runs coming up and I have a marathon in September so I want to up my mileage. I have been running for about 3 years and I have been racing for 1 year.
