How to Fix Shin Splints (Witty Title, I Know)
I have a friend who’s attempting to join the FBI later this year, and unfortunately, one of the tests she has to pass is a timed 1.5 mile run. To prepare, she’s been running like a bat out of hell lately, and of course, her shins are banged up as a result. Anyone who has read my blog for any period of time knows how much of a fan I am of distance running to get in shape (Hint: I’d rather swallow ebola). Nonetheless, in this instance, it’s not quite as simple as me telling someone to simply “stop running.”
Either way, before she heads to Quantico and get all Clarice Starling up their asses, I suggested she watch the above video from dieselcrew.com showcasing their shin splint rehab protocol. Great stuff.
