Yeah if you are doing lots of running you need to be stretching and building up core muscles- squats, jumps etc 

Get a form roller and use it daily.

It's most likely down to the bio-mechanics of your feet. If you have any pronation then you'll need to address it.

I've had shin splints since I was a kid and orthotics was the only thing that fixed it for me.



Used to always get what I thought were shin splints at the start of every pre-season. Turns out it was the muscle at the front of my shin bone, well to the side of it, that was weak and was becoming strained with the training load. 

Started to do strengthening exercises for that area with resistance bands and haven't had issues since. Would do strength training for my lower body without runners on too. As you mentioned, it's helped strengthen my feet which has helped.

@Coleman, I'd recommend doing as much as possible without shoes, even around the house, ditch flip-flops, etc if you wear them regularly.

This. Shin splints are generally issues in the muscles around the shin as oppose to any damage to the shin itself. You'd be amazed how much training your feet and ankles would help it. Walking barefoot around the house engages so many tiny muscles and joints that wouldn't normally be used when wearing shoes. There are also simple exercises on your feet and ankles you can do for 5 mins a day that would make a huge difference

Anybody do any early morning running say 6am, wanting to change my routine with the footpaths being packed now in the evenings especially with the sunny weather coming. Is it easier to run in the mornings than evenings or do you feel better when you do your run in the morning?

I always preferred to do it first thing in the morning, sets you up for the rest of the day. 

It’s hard getting up but once you are out on the road it’s all good.

I do it at 8:30 a bit, drop the kids to the creche, and then run before work. Tougher to get going, and obviously a lot colder but you do feel great after it

I've been going in the evenings. Sleep a lot better after proper exercise in the evening. Unfortunately can't do road running everyday as finds it makes my knee swell. Anyone find the same?

started a couple of weeks ago and up to 15 90 seconds running and 30 second break intervals, hate it and I’m barely able to get through it at all but it’s the first time in 2 or 3 years I’ve exercised so trying to stick at it. Have it in my head to get up at 7 or 8 for one but find I’ve gotten fairly lazy with this working from home stuff and I never get up for it.

Fair play TWC, keep at it. It's all about developing the habit of exercising, the results will come in time.

I aim to get up and run before work a couple of times a week but in reality it probably only happens one or twice a month at best. It does set you up for the day but I find my pace is always a bit slower in the mornings, don't know if that's down to a hydration issue or what the cause is.

This weekend was supposed to be the Limerick marathon, but they had a virtual event instead. 
So I did mine on Saturday morning. Had a friend join me on 17km for the motivation. 
At the last Dublin marathon my calf went on the 32km mark and had to walk the rest and I could feel the same pain starting again around 38km. 
Legs were f*cked but I slowly went on and definitely would have given up if I didn't have the help. 
Ended up doing it in 4.21 which I'm pretty happy with. My pacing was supposed to be 4.13 but considering the leg issues I'm still happy enough. 
Think I drank well and ate well so I don't know how I can do it again without the feeling that my calf is going to tear. 
Not sure if it's silly or optimistic to think that this years Dublin marathon I could get under 4 hours.

You can get a heal raise which will alleviate the pressure on your calf. I'd only use it for the marathon though.

I ran from mine in Rathfarnham to a friend's house in Tallaght which was 10km. I'd dropped in some drinks to him the day before so I did 3 10km loopsaround Tallaght, so people were in his garden to cheer me on each lap which really helped. 
Hopefully Dublin will go ahead with competitors and spectators.

I’m not a serious runner by any means - I do three 5ks a week purely for weight management and to try and maintain some form of fitness as I’ve stopped playing football competitively now - but... I find it great to get the run done and dusted first thing in the morning before work.
Usually around 7 or 7:30am in my case.
It has the added bonus for me of not having to worry about timing my food intake which was a pain when running later in the day.
I have my breakfast after the run.
But as I said my mileage isn’t high so maybe that wouldn’t work so well for longer distances.
