Hello lovely c25kers!!!! Long time no post! I've been suffering on and off for 4 months with shin pain. Ignored it for a while, could run through it then it would go, then would rest, some days had to stop immediately. I've battled for what seems like ages and always had my shoes at the back of my mind.
It all started when I changed my shoes. I've been back to the shop twice. They've insisted they are fine. I've had sports massages, been icing, foam rolling and exercising. You name it. I've done it. And every time they come back. Not badly, but something niggling.
So today I decided to go for a second opinion. Found a different sports shop. Explained the long story!! He was fab!!! Got me on a treadmill and videoed me!! That was a first!!! He was horrified!! My shoes were not providing the correct support at all. He said they were too small in the toes and agreed too big on heels. Thank goodness at last someone believed me!!!!
An hour later and numerous pairs of shoes tested I came out with a very bouncy pair of Asics. They feel amazing!! Makes me realise how brick like my others were. Unfortunately my shins are sore after the testing so I'm back on rest but now feel there is hope!!!
Toon will be back!!!!!! Xxx
