Well i am still suffering from shin splints but i can't just sit about and rest, not only because of my application but because I am a rugby player also. So what do people rekon i should do?

I asked physio about cycling but she wasn't to keen on that idea. obviously there is upper body work i can be doing but it feels wierd not doing any lower body work in the gym etc.
Anyone else tell me what they did whilst getting through shin splints?

Hiya Dodger :D

I'd say swimming for around 60mins each session or pool runs should do the trick for you ... low impact but great for building stamina & strengthening your muscles!

Swimming is definately the best option; I had shin splints a while back, so I dropped the running from my training completely, and went to the pool 5 days a week. I worked my nuts off in the pool mixing up sprints with distance sets - when I went back to running about 2 weeks later, my times had actually improved!!

My advice: download a swim training programme from the internet and follow it - keeps you motivated and on track.

Happy training.

A nice pair of white Nike Air Force ones do the trick.
