I've always had this issue. My solution was to stop running.

I used to get shinsplints so I stopped running.

Over the past few months, I've slowly started getting back into it. I do a moderate to intense warm-up, then stretch before running. I also stretch after. Getting blood flowing to the muscles before stretching seems to help a good bit; but you'll already be pooped before starting your run. Helps with breathing, I suppose.

Your hat might be on too tight.

If they are shin splints, try walking on your heels with your toes pointed upward for 30 seconds before each run. Shin splints absolutely debilitate me when I get them, and I run a lot - so it isn't just a new runner thing.

Also, shoes are really important too. If you are trying to really get into running, you are going to have to spend a bit on good shoes. Run for your life is a great place to go, as mentioned. I have the Nike+ Lunarlite and Flywire shoes that I rotate between and they have been the best shoes I have ever run with.

Running, how I loathe you. Sadly it's part of the training I do for squash - treadmill, rower, bike. Plus circuits, but that's another discussion.

I find the best way is to do some light jogging then stop to do your full stretches. Then run. You shouldn't stretch when your muscles are cold, but I find I'm less stiff the next day if I do stretches before and after the intense stuff happens.

As for the pounding comment - the rest of my afternoon is now lost.

May or may not be relevant... my shinsplints came mostly from poor form. My poor form was the result of unbalanced training (for example, working the muscles I stare at in the mirror while ignoring the other muscles)
Easy solution to that: yoga.

I've been stretching and I've tried 3 different pairs of shoes. I stretched for around 30 minutes this morning and it didn't really help at all. Do shin splints hurt all the time? Because my leg only really hurts while I'm running or walking immediately after the run.

shin splints are what cut my marathon training short a couple of years ago. :(


They just wouldn't go away.

How long is a typical run, how long does it take you?
