I have always suffered with Shin Splints. I have had all the correct shoes, (over pronator), been checked by video analysis etc, and have a sports masage once a fortnight for my calves/shins etc. I also have recovery drinks to aid muscle recovery after every run!
No matter what I try and do they always creep back after lay offs. The worst culprit seems to be when I incorporate speed sesions into my weekly workouts. The trouble is, without speed sessions, I have no way of bringing my times down, but I know this is what is killing my shins!
I have also tried dropping a few extra pounds in the hope that will ease the joints/muscles, but to no avail.
Any ideas/suggestions/help would be fab as I'm on the border of giving up which I really don;t want to do, but its sooooo frustrating
