    Double shin splint getting on my nerves...

    I used to do a lot of biking + weight training. 2 weeks ago I saw my girlfriend in her first marathon ever and I decided I wanted to do the 10k (train for real not just participate).

    I used to play football in high school and after every drills my leg use to hurt like hell. I'm following a 10k training (6 days a week) it's nothing really heavy, 30 min or 3.5-4 miles worst case scenario.

    Now it's back and worst. I run for 10 min and the minute I have trouble walking. I have to sit down for a couple of minutes. I tried all the kind of shoes. Nike shocks to really cheap shoes. At the moment I run with Saucony Hattori minimalist shoes. I even tried the five fingers same result.

    I don't have any family doctor but I have insurance. Do you think I should go the private clinic to talk to somebody? What could they do except giving me painkiller and suggest to change shoes?

    It's in both legs now... can't even run for a mile

    Do you heel strike when you run? I was getting terrible shin splints in my legs when I landed heel first. I started to train myself to run more on the balls of my feet and have noticed a lot of stress has been taken off my shins. Now if only I could get my ankle pain to go away I'd be set.. lol

    That's one reason why I bought minimalist shoes but I still heel strike some times....

    Sounds like a stupid question but how do you train to run on the front part of your feet?

    I've dealt with this before...I run about 30 miles a week...First...ice down your shins several times a day...Here's an exercise you can do....pretend your toe is a pencil...write the ABC's several times...Take a over the counter pain reliever like Motrin...Give it time to rebound...worked for me brah
    While liftin duh weights I yell out..."You sexy beast"...."Squeeze metal for papa".

    Take a break before you start training again. You might microfracture on your shinbone (nothing to worry about) but you need time to heal so your bone will be tougher.
