    Leg "bone"? pain after intense running?

    I've been running intensely for over a week to improve my cardio for tests in may and I have this persistent pain in what seems to he the bones of my lower legs. I keep running through the pain but it's been there for days and is not fading away as fast as I'd hope. When I got my treadmill and started running I got the same pain but after 1-2 days it didn't happen anymore. Since I started really pushing myself it's taking much longer to fade out, so long that I run again before it's gone. I think it's chin splints.

    Should I just keep running through the pain or take more days off? I really need to get my cardio better quickly.

    Thanks

    Yeah I got shin splints when I first started too, my left leg still bothers me. I wear a compression sleeve and that helps. Ice....lots and lots of ice, try icing like 3-4 times a day.

    And something that really worked for me is getting a styrofoam cup and filling it with water and sticking it in freezer....Once frozen pull out and tear off the top rim of cup, and use it as a massager up and down your shin....it will hurt like hell at first but eventually your leg goes numb from the cold. So your essentially icing and massaging out the splint.

    Rest too. Try not to run for a week or two.

    Yep, shin splints is what that is. I would not recommend running through it. They can acutally get to be pretty serious if they are not rested to heal properly. Do a google search and you will see what I mean. Rest rest rest. I had pretty severe splints and had to stop running for several weeks.

    I went on a strict running regime in my mid 20's started with two miles and worked up to a four mile round trip every night, had never had a shin splint so when they started hurting I ignored it. Well, that worked for about 10 days, after that I woke up one morning and could barely walk.

    Stopped running and a few years laters learned what the deal was, I got some corrective shoes for my slight flat footedness and talked to a running training about my gait. After that I started running again but if I push myself to hard, I still get shin splints.

    Thanks. It did get pretty painful 1-2 times, once I was walking like a 90 year old with extremem arthritis for 45 minutes after my run, I was taking like 2 inch steps. I was almost screaming in pain. I have a very high pain tolerance and that may be why I push myself so much.

    How could I improve my cardio while allowing my chin splints to heel? Taking a few weeks off is not an option, my tests are in may.

    By the way is it safe to squat while I have the pain?

    Thanks

    I'm flat-footed as well and wear arch supports when running. Seems to help with my knee pain. But to the OP, shin splints happen and you have to rest. Every time you fully recover then push yourself again and you'll be stronger and faster.

    Squating is fine. What hurts it is when the heal of the foot is on the ground and the toe is pointed up in the air. That is what you have to stay away from. That means no running but you perhaps could do jump rope and you can do squats and leg press. Just stay way from pulling your toes off the ground.

    ...shin spints can get bad if not taken care of property. first - ice, and lots of it. 30 minutes on, a hour off. over and over again. if you NEED to run, then i suggest some sort of shoe support w/better shoes, inserts, or both.

    if that doesnt work, i suggest learning some sports medicine taping procedures. the shin splint one is pretty easy - basically, flex your foot upwards - while in that posititon, prewrap where your shins hurt, and get some athletic tape ripped into strips to wrap tightly around your shin and calf where it hurts. this should help if the shin splints arent TOO bad.

    if that doesnt work, then do the taping, then run on grass/sand. dont run on the treadmill, gravel, or concrete.

    You dont run through shin splints. Horrible advice. Listen to Gx7 you need to ice it. If you want the pain to go away you should stop running at the moment and rest.

    Exactly. "Shin Splints" is a generic term for pain over the anterior portion of the tibia. It could be a stress fracture, muscle tightness from too much dorsiflexion while running, or a number of other causes . It's best to get it checked out to determine the cause, and then evaluate your treatment options from there.

    For alternatives, look for fixed feet cardio like biking.

    Swimming.. best cardio while recovering from shin splints. That is what I did last year when I over ran each day. I was doing about 5 km per day.. and 10 km on Sundays... eww. I learn my lesson pretty quick.
    That's tingling feeling in your body... that is pain.... minor detail.

    Have you tried using Icey Hot where the pain is?

    Then lighting the IceyHot on fire?

    Potentially leading to your death?

    When the heat is on, the pain is gone.
