If it is shin splints, try to not run on hard surfaces, like cement. Besides the exercises Doris named, calf raises (standing on your toes) to exhaustion several times a day will help to strengthen that area.

Of course, if there is pain, you should not run on it (pain and discomfort are two different things). If pain persists more than a few days, you should see a dr.

Welcome. Toe taps, trace the alphabet with your foot, just two exercises for shin splints. There are many more......google shin splints to find them:)

I used to run in high school, and even early in college, but then fell out of it when life got in the way. So I am getting back into it now, and fighting with shin splints, but still getting out there and making my running mark on the world! I have a 5K coming up in a little over a month, and can't wait for that!

On a side note, if anybody knows the best ways to handle shin splints, please message me and let me know, cause these are killing me!!!


It's not about waiting for the storm to pass...it's about learning to dance in the rain.
