I have been doing the c25k plan for about two months now. I'm only on week five though as I keep having to rest for a few weeks due to illnes and injury. The last time I ran was a week ago but I keep getting shin splints now that i'm running a bit further. I know that it will probably be helped if get a better insole in my trainers but at the minute (with Christmas coming up) I haven't got any money to buy them yet. Is there any exercises/stretches that I could do to help reduce the risk of getting shin splints as I don't want to keep having to take breaks from the plan because of them.
