Hello . Thanks to everyone for their help so far. I have just finished week 6 run 3, and I still have sore shins. I have got new trainers, and got new heel insoles as suggested on here, which have helped. How can I tell if my shins are sore, or if it is shin splints? They hurt to press, but not to walk. Don't want to have to give up now I have got so far! Can anyone help? Thanks!
