I’ve developed a mild case of shin splints on my right leg. Painful enough to know better than to continue running through it. I took four days off from running and read a lot about the causes, treatment, and prevention. As I haven’t been to the doctor to get a more formal diagnose, I’m calling it shin splints. I’ve had issues with shin splints off on and since I was about 13 years old.The last time I had them was about four or five years ago. I got a new pair of shoes, did some cross training on the elliptical and they went away in a few weeks. So that’s what I’m trying this time around.
