Just thought I'd see if any of the members here are runners & have had problems with shin splints. I usually run about 3 miles a day and have noticed a pain in my lower right leg that runs along the front inside of my calf just above the ankle up to the middle of the calf. It seems the pain is more noticeable along the side of the bone. It doesn't hurt until I have run for about a mile ,then progressively just keeps getting gradually worse. Haven't gotten to the point where I have to just quit running, but I'm tired of this holding me back, as the rest of my body wants to continue going to the 5 mile mark. I have been using a pair of Asics gel 1070 shoes for the past 5 months and bought some Reebok DMX 6 shoes to try out,but haven't seen any improvement. I stretch before I run and walk at least a half mile before running to warmup.Would cortisone injections help, at least to get me through Summer training? Any suggestions would be appreciated.
