I've recently joined a local CrossFit box to get into shape and lose some weight. As with any good exercise routine, running and various jumping exercises are in order. But for me, I've been "grounded" from doing them for the past two weeks due to shin splits. I'll get sharp stabbing pains in my shins while sitting still doing nothing, and climbing stairs can aggravate them. I've stopped doing all running & jumping exercises, and have subbed rowing for all running. But I'm starting to wonder if it's time to see a doctor about them?
Needless to say in my 35 years running and jumping is something I haven't done a lot of. View Thread
