i had shin splints after my half which i walked but i knew it was because i took a hill really fast they gave me grief the last 2.5 miles of the race but i also know now that if i would have been able to cross train those last six weeks b4 my half i would have not had them. I have been doing stairs and hills to help me for my next ones. I used alot of painburst (icyhot) on both feet, legs, calves, shins and theighs that week after and it went away i also rested but once i started back up i was good. I'd get it checked out. I was fortunate to have a foot dr. appt right after my half and my foot dr does ironmans marathons etc. so he told me i was good. I would go to the docs to make sure you don't have a stress and hopefully he may have you go to phy therapy pick one that specializes in sport injuries so they can teach you the right way vs. the wrong way. Hugs!! hope you feel better!!!

Does anyone know anything about running injuries? As soon as I started running, I started having pain in my shins which I assume is shin splints. The pain is not really on my shin bone, its on the inside of my leg, running along right where my shin bone meets muscle. It feels like an aching pain, that gets sharp and burns and sometimes will wake me up at night. If I take a few days off running the pain is still there, it hurts to touch. Is this shin splints?
The other weird thing, and I haven't actually experienced this in the last few runs, but sometimes during a run, one or both of my feet will go numb. Has anyone had that? Any ideas what causes it or what I can do to prevent it?
