Im sure some of you guys, as with me...with all this upper body strength training youre fairly top heavy. Since I started training properely i suffered on and off from shinsplints. I had GOOD running shoes (or so i thought), tried other stuff i.e. ice treatment, massage and stretches.

Turns out...(this may seem stupid and some of you may already know, but for those that don't) you're only meant to use a typical pair of running trainers (i.e. asics in my case) for up to 3/4months or there abouts.
As soon as i got a new pair, although setting me back £70 my shinsplints disappeared within a week or two.

Hope that's some help to any of you guys :)

yeah thats what i found out as well, nearly £70 for a pair of decent trainers that are no good after about 5 months or so
