After finishing at Uni I started back at the gym again to get in shape, my routine included the treadmill, however almost straight away my shins were aching (had this 3 years before starting uni), but worse than last time. I knew I didn't have proper trainers so I just stopped using the treadmill. However recently I got some Asics trainers which were recommended to me by the Gym owner. However started on the treadmill again today using them and after 5mins my shins were aching again! Have I been unlucky and got some crap trainers again or can you never get over shin splints? Is it worth going to a running shop to see if they recommend a different pair or should I give up using the treadmill. I play 5 a side twice a week for an hour in astro turf trainers and have no problems there, so it is the treadmills causing me the problem? Will the same happen if I go for a jog around the block?
