I'm new to running, well cardio exercise in general! I just started in January fast walking then built up to running in March. On Memorial Day I ran the Bolder Boulder 10K in 82 minutes. I still have to walk a lot when I'm running. Anyway, for the past 3 weeks I've been having severe pain in my lower left leg between my knee and ankle. Finally went to the doctor yesterday to confirm shin splints (never had them before). He didn't speak to me of stretching exercises, so I thought I'd ask you all what some good ones are.
Any other methods of resolving shin splints besides rest?
