Hello everyone, i need help and advise on how to avoid shin splints this time round. Been away from the program since january. I decided its time to give it a go again. Month ago i joined the 5k program but had to stop by wk2 because i suffer from terrible shin splints that nothing i did helped. Even my dr told me to stop. I invested in good trainers, good insoles, but everytime i run i was in agonising pain for days. I even tried running in our local park on the edges on the running area ( on the grass). As i was told pounding the concrete was causing the pain as i was overweight.
I really want to give it a go again, and improve my fitness and weight.
Any advice welcome.
By the way .., i walk everyday...whenever possible and enjoy it. But running is my aim.
