A new runner was having some aching in pain in the shins and he asked,
“I just started running. I started having shin splints. Some people told me I have to stop. Some people, say I don’t. What do I have to do?”
Obviously, if you started running, you’re starting to develop some fitness and you’re finally getting to the place where you can run consistently, the last thing you want to do is give up your running routine.
The good news is that in some cases you don’t have to stop running just because you have aching pain in your shins. You just have two figure out whether or not it is really a big problem or something that can improve with minor changes in your running routine.
Do I have to stop running to cure shin splints? That’s what we’re talking about today on the Doc On The Run podcast.
