Title says it all. Started running a lot as of late and a week or two in I got traumatic periostitis of the shin bone (to be scientific :d), i.e. Shin Splints ;( I've heard people stretch and massage the soleus muscle and claim it's helped. Other say they alternate burning hot water and ice cold water for 1minute intervals. I'll try both of these. Anyone else got advice on treatment? Also, how often should I run? At this point I'm running almost every day; two days long distance, two days sprints and two days aerobic/anaerobic intervals. What do you think, too much running? What alternatives are there to running for cardio (don't say swimming or bike, I know of these and they don't really work well for me xD)? Thanks!
