I'm starting to get into running I usually cycle for cardio but I want to run so the first couple days I went out and my tibialis anterior hurt like a bitch afterwards...and not sore actually painful, so I took two days off, today being the second day. I'm still sore but the pain has subsided and I wanted to go running tomorrow. Do you guys think I should go or should i wait until I feel no soreness at all. Also what nsaid should i be taking?

Tibialis Anterior Pain From Running

AKA shin splints
we ran with it during the season, in fact I had it for about 2 months and I started using athletic tape on my arches (pronation issue caused it, i assume) and it literally fixed it after one race. try icing it/cold shower after running/tape and you should get some results.
take ibuprofen as well
edit: yes you can run with it, but make sure you take very good care of it before and after your runs. letting something like that go for a while will **** you up

Stretch your shins before and after running, it's an awkward one to do, but think of it as reverse calf-raises - you stand with the heels of your feet on the ground, and raise your toes up off the ground (as high as you can get them).
Hold the stretch for a minute, and repeat a couple of times - really helps.

pick up marbles with your toes, or tie a weight to your foot and to reverse calf raisesi rep back if you do

Use some of those freezer lunchbox type ice packs on your shins for about 15 mins each leg every hour, put some IcyHot on at night (just don't make your nose blow off your face with the smell) and keep stretching.
