After many years I've managed to convince my husband to go running. He's managed to do 20 minutes, and has gone 3 times a week for the past 4 weeks. In the past 2 weeks though he has had pain in his legs around the shin area. Although I have made him buy new trainers (Reebok cheapy pair, he wouldn't buy an expensive pair), and also to stretch properly afterwards , (he was only doing 10 seconds of pushing against a wall), and put ice on the area that hurt when it first occured, and he has rested for a week, he is still getting the pain. Is there anything else he can do?
Both he and I are getting frustrated with this, as I want him to enjoy running as much as I do. Should he see a physio or sports massage therapist? or rest again? please help!
