July 31, 2009, Newsletter Issue #388: Shin Splints

Tip of the Week

To prevent shin splints, strengthen the front of your lower leg by lifting the side of a weight plate with your toes (heel on the ground) or walking around on your heels, then stretch your calves. If you have mild shin splints, cut back on your running, ice afterwards, and check that your shoes arenīt worn out. A severe case calls for time off running and a trip to the doc.
