    What the hell is going on?

    I've had shin splints before but this feels like something different.

    What is your running schedule like?
    Have you just started up again?
    Are your shoes in good condition and real running shoes?
    What surface are you running on- concrete, grass, asphalt?

    work on calf flexibility/stretching

    i used to get splints horribly. moved into the city (Seattle) and stopped driving. After 2-3 months of walking ~4-5 miles a day up and down those hills, I found that, for the first time in my life, not only could I run more than 5mi, but I could do it pain-free.

    Sometimes walking > * :dunno:

    Tibulus anterior. Build it up and you'll never have shin splints. Anytime you take a shit, take your toes and point them up and then put them down. Keep your heals on the ground. You'll feel it on your shin, flexing it. Opposite move of a calf raise basically. After a month, you'll never have shin splints.

    I've been doing that while at my desk at work. I'll also walk around on my heels while I'm home. I've noticed a huge improvement.

    Running on concrete, ftl. :(

    Gradually working you way into running will allow your body to add bone density and it does it at an even faster pace when hills are involved. :bigthumb:

    Most people have problems not replacing their shoes as they should which makes it worse on bones with less density.

    If the thread starter stopped running for several months and started again cold turkey his body wasn't ready for the impact adsorbed from the run and he might have done more damage than he thinks.

    Yes, I know, but getting run over by old people who can't stay in their lane is way worse.

    I had that too, just made a thread last week. I bought some Nike Shox for running shoes instead of my crappy converse sneekers and it seemed to help quite a bit.
