I'm fairly new into running (3 months of running 3-4x/week, 1-3 miles), and I seem to be very prone to shin splints.
Is there much you can do? From what I have read, icing and resting is about it.
Also, when I run slower it seems worse than if I'm running fairly fast. Slow being 9kph faster being 12-13kph.
I'd have no issue with just resting them, but I'm heading to Texas for Firefighting academy and I know we will be running about 2 miles each day, and testing my 1.5 mile each week.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated
