We put heaps of force through our body when we exercise and many runners will have had some experience of pain and injury during their training days.
I know some at GG and other clients I have trained have expressed the frustration and pain off shin splints etc so as part of a fitness routine I have put together a few ideas here that can help prevent it as well as assist with rehab on the way out of it.
These are not to guarantee that bouts of injury will never happen again, but they are to help strengthen those muscles that we take for granted every time we lace up and to help offset injury probability.
In most cases such injuries and pains are likely be from too much too soon, lack of recovery from bigger sessions as well as gait and trainer issues so if you are prone to or experiencing injury do consult a physio or medic first and build up slowly with the least intense methods first.

You probably know but just a reminder …doing these once or twice will not set you up for stronger conditioned lower legs for life. They need to be incorporated into a regular pattern of activity. Let’s keep this one live for February and aim for aspects of the plan at least twice a week
Let me know if you have any questions ; - )
