I also agree with YOJULEZ about getting fit for a good pair of running shoes. One thing that helped with me (before I made that investment) was slowly transitioning from running on a treadmill to running outside. I was also able to focus on correcting my form to avoid shin splints as much as possible.

I had shin splints all through high school, I played soccer, did track, and was in a marching band. The school trainer would put tape around my legs right below the knee cap, and right above my ankle. It helped a lot. I think they even sell special bands for that now, I think I saw some at Walgreens.

Also, if you haven't already, you might want to go to a running store to have them check out your feet. Your shoes may not be fitting correctly and that can aggravate shin splints.

I like running but I get shin splints and all that if I over do it. I try to cross etc. I really like the feeling that running gives me. I feel get a lot more cardio in a small period of time than any other exercise. But the pain derails me to a point where I can only walk. what to do?
