    Painful Shin from running!

    Hi folks, anyone have any help advice for painful shins caused by running?
    i have read a bit and most of the articles point to shin splints, very different to when I had them in the past as a younger lad from football with swelling etc, this is just a pain, mostly right shin, noticeable when walking, more so when runing.
    thanks

    Rest is the only cure, so you either stop or put up with the pain, which will no doubt get worse as you continue...

    Obviously you have to stop running just until it feels like you can run again so I suggest biking instead.it really is underestimated how good cycling is when you have an injury as it probably is the impact of running that is causing the pain.

    Have a few weeks off

    If Andy Murray or Rory Mcilroy have injuries they don't continue pounding out training. You rest, get back to better health, then work to get back to full fitness.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    Therein lies the problem though. Ran Sunday, sore after and Monday took the weeman to play play football in the field just a kick about, could barely get going at times, yesterday was sore but getting easier and today isn't too bad, so I feel I can run tonight, but then thinking it will start over again. Have a busy golf week/weekend, so tonight would be the only time I can run until Monday next week. So do I leave it til then, or try tonight? I realise only I can decide that, but thanks again, input is appreciated.

    Re: Painful Shin from running!

    Three, I didnt say you were wrong, but to put 'stop running' is an unhelpful comment without justification.
    And ofcourse its not what I wanted to hear, I had hoped that someone may have had the same issue, and found a solution that allowed them to continue to run, PJ came up with a partial solution, using a bike instead, good input, and something I can work at!
