I've been having a twingy pain in my left shin for a couple of weeks, so i've reduced mileage, iced and been trying to do extra stretches/exercises using calf muscles to help. I 'think' some causes are that I run on the road or pavement (which is very slanted in places), and wearing heels at work may have shortened/weakened my calf muscle..?
Anyone got any experience with shin splints/shin pain? What were the things that helped get you back out there?
Been advised to 'toe tap' (tap toes 20 times) and to use KT tape by a colleague.
I'm feeling frustrated and sorry for myself, any advise welcome
