Shin Splints/Treadmill Running

Shin Splints/Treadmill Running


Q1. Shin splints – got my first one yesterday, will it go on its own and will it re-occur?

Q2. How come I can run for 30 minutes on a treadmill quite easily, but after 3 minutes on the road I am completely out of breath? Thank you Janet Answer: Dear Janet,

Re: Shin Splint I would recommend that you got yourself checked out before continuing to run. You may need better footwear or advice on relevant stretches.

Re: Treadmill versus outdoor running Obviously when running outdoors you have to consider variable such as gradients of surface, temperature and wind; all of which will affect your ability to train. On a treadmill with zero gradient the effort level will be much reduced.

Kind regards
