Hi all! I’ve been walking quite a bit lately and my shins are really hurting! It makes it tough for me to get a good walk in . Any suggestions? Thanks :)

    Good shoes are a must! Running stores can help you find the right fit for your feet. A lot are doing virtual fittings.

    Now that you're injured, rest or ice might be necessary. Look up shin splints on a medical site.

    I was walking a couple hours a day up and down some steep hills since lockdown. I hurt my knee, now I'm stuck on the flatlands. I don't like it, but my knee is happier.

    There are a couple physical therapists on YouTube I like, go to Bob and Brad and see if they have some exercises for you...

    I walked five days a week for 50 minutes a day and ended up with a knee injury. Was told to rest and go to physical therapy. Resting is not fun.

    I get shin splints to and I invested in a good pair shoes and a resistance band and use it everyday for strefching excerises and I have noticed a big differnce. Also ice after each walk helps also
