Has anyone dealt with shin splints? I don't want to stop running every other day because I don't want to lose my motivation. Any suggestions?Sad

If you have reached the stage where it is painful to walk, let alone run, then you will need to stop running.

I stopped for two weeks, and then started very very slowly, mixing running with walking in order to build up the muscles, 1 minute run, 1 minute walk that kind of thing.

Rest completely, then build yourself up gradually would be my advice.

Be aware, without a qualified medical diagnosis you may be interpreting this as shin splints when it could be something else.
Your body, your choice, heed advice, not instructions.

Make sure you have proper running trainers.Investing in a good pair will help immensely.This was the advice that I had.If you have the money you can get a proper gait test done at most sports shops/outlets to make sure you have the right trainers for you.Also,I found a spell of treadmill running helped ease it whilst I built back up as it is easier on the joints etc.
