in my case it's clearly a case of too much too soon.
I had them chronically in 2006 and didn't know any better than to run through the pain. I came off running altogether do to a heart scare and they went away :)

This time round I am coming back to running and pretty much went out untrained on a long run. Although pace was low, my lower leg muscles are clearly weak. I don't do any walking and all my exercise is condensed to probably my hour gym session.

I probably walk at most 500 meters a day. - ie from house to the car to the office and a few trips to the water machine.
Before I used to have a job where I was away from my desk and probably walked the equivalent of 3 km a day at least.

When you think if it like that, it's little wonder my shins are weak / imbalanced.

I have shin splints on my right leg. I think they were caused by high impact stuff from circuits.
Anyway told to have 2 weeks off impact stuff.
However, having not run since Monday it seems to be getting worse not better.
Anyone else experienced this?
