Working on speed? Increasing your distance? Here are 2 dead easy exercises to prevent shin splints

Stand with your toes touching, heels far apart. Slowly raise your heels and slowly lower them.

Stand with your heels touching, toes far apart making a V shape. Same again: slowly raise and lower your heels.

Repeat each ex 10 times. I do them before and after a run but also during the day at the sink or whenever I think of it. It is ok to lightly rest your hands on a table to keep your balance
