RE: johnny5, help2001 and other OHsquatters
usually running. sometimes rowing, and some swimming. althought the last 2 weeks have just been hill sprints. not been doing it with enough frequency to casue shin splints, never had them before and always take the necessary precautions [stretching, cooldown, strength training etc etc]. been running with a weighted bergen for years, so if i ain't got them by now i doubt i'll ever get them.
but good suggestion. oddly enough though, i don't notice the pain when i'm running. only now and again when i'm sat down for a while and go to get up, oh, and straight after a set of OHsquats. itsnot very intense pain, more of a dull twinge.
