    Shin splints-how do I prevent them? HELP

    Shin splints are the worst!! Ice massage helps recovery. Shin splints is an overuse injury. They are tiny tears in the muscle/tendon, and cause painful inflammation. aA first if feels like a 'good' soreness after a workout, but it doesn't dissipate it get's worse. The best treatment is prevention Run on softer ground if possible (dirt>asphalt>sidewalk) Slow down (mph), Limit your mileage until your bones and tendons have toughened up Stretch before and after your run

Run when you can, walk when you need to You got this!! Good luck, keep us updated
