Anyone have experience in managing/getting rid of shin splints.
I started running about about 2/3 months ago, doing 15/20km a week alongside riding. Week before last I had a holiday in France and did a fair bit of riding uphill and some longer/hillier runs. Started noticing a dull ache on the outside of my shin bone, no more than a 3 or 4/10 for 'pain', more just uncomfortable and noticable all the time (not just during activity).
Had a week off last week save for gentle spinning on the turbo. Been doing some strength and rehab work from the 'recover' app (included with Strava premium subscription BTW and quite good, worth downloading).
I will probably take this week off running too and then try and ease in with a couple of 5ks next week but interested to hear of any feedback or tips on this subject as never had this sort of injury before (had my share of others though so can gladly add it to the list!) - annoying as I was starting to feel the runs becoming easier/faster/less of a slog.
