I was so prepared this morning when I went to work. I brought my work out gear and shoes with me. I even remembered my pedometer. When work ended at 6pm, I went straight to the stadium and started my walk. Again I was hit with shin splint on my leg leg. I only get shin splints when I walk at the stadium. And it's always on my left leg only. The other leg felt fine and there was no pain elsewhere too. I wonder why this happens. I've walked at the stadium 3 times now and all 3 times I had shin splints on the same leg and its always on the outer part of my shin.
At the stadium we walk around the football field, in an anti-clockwise direction. Is there any connection to the shin splint on the left leg?
And, how can I reduce the pain from recurring again? Any specific stretches? Does anyone especially runners or walkers have any tips for me?
