Thanks for the link to the article, that was particularly helpful :)
I think I'll try cycling instead for now, but I'll check out some walking routes too :3
Thanks for the help :D

Here's an article that we have that has some information on how to deal with shin splints: teens.sparkpeople.com/resource/fitness_art
icles.asp?id=611
.

As for continuing to run, I wouldn't advise that at this point. But something that would be safer and better for now is to do walking instead of running because it is low-impact, especially compared to running.

Hope you feel better soon!

Recently I've been getting sharp pains in one of my shins, as someone who runs on pavement and who's recently increased their mileage, I'm pretty sure it's shin splints :/

But what do I do about it? It even hurts a little to walk :/ I want to heal it, but keep running, is this possible/safe? My local gym isn't easy to get to and so running is my primary form of exercise, I don't want to have to stop :(

(also, my trainers are already relatively new, I don;t think they need replacing in this instance)
