Running Ragged

So, I'm having a severe running issue for the last few weeks... Shin splints. It is just in my right leg and I have done everything I know to get that muscle to cooperate. I bought new shoes and then added extra arch support. I've been stretching before and after and icing after each run. I took off a week from last Wednesday to last night and did manage to do 3 miles pretty comfortably. Butttttt, I was afraid to push it because I still felt the tinge of pain every now and then. Any runners out there have any other ideas to help this issue?

  2. New shoes and insoles would be my only real advice, but I thought I read an article about ways to heal shin splints in Women's Running not long ago. Maybe search on their site and see if anything comes up. What a bummer :(

  3. Well, having good form when you run is a must. And making sure you stay light on your feet. Chi Running is a good book to read. Well, I haven't read it, but Hannah and Katherine have and that helped them a bunch. :)
