I'm hoping someone can give me advice...I've had shin splints for a couple of months now. I completed c25k about a month ago and had a couple of weeks rest. All seemed ok until I tried running again then the aches and pains came back immediately. So I got new trainers from a proper running shop, still no joy. Decided to leave it another 2 weeks. Feels a lot better but can still feel a niggle when walking and worry it's going to come back as soon as I start jogging. I've heard I need to rest the calf
muscles but also heard to do strengthening exercises. Are you supposed to do the strengthening exercises while you're resting ie not running or after waiting a number of weeks of complete rest?
