Topic - Shin Splints? Do I have them? How to recover?
| by - puppythedog on - 12 Nov 2012
|I started running a little while ago, using interval programs to increase my ability to run until I could Run 5k. Following a week of probably overdoing it (A slow 4 mile run, two days later a quick [for me] 5 k and then three days after that running intervals for 9.5k) the inside of my leg below the knee hurt. |
Internet research suggested shin flint which is apparently not an illness but a symptom. I've laid off for a week, can I go running again yet?
I know that any advice I get here is not the same as seeking medical attention, I work within Health and fully understand that I am responsible for myself. Also I understand that I would have to pay for a sport physio consultation because NHS money should not be spent as a priority on a muppet like me. I just want some thoughts from people who run and may have been there.
