So I believe I have shin splints, the posterior kind. My inner, lower shin is hurting on the side and it is tender to the touch.
I’ve had this before and I want to say that it has gone away on its own. Though this time I feel like I need to not believe it will go away on its own. What steps can I take? I am concerned because, I am training for my first half (I am only at a distance of 5 -6 miles) and I have been doing all of my running on a treadmill.
Is anyone familiar with shin splints? I am currently in the process of r.i.c.e and also will be starting to do calve stretches. Could these shin splints occur because of the type of treadmill I am running on. It hurts worse when I am on a treadmill that has 3 inch treads and then a space and 3 inch treads and so on. If that has a name for it…
If anyone has any insight, I would love to hear it!
