My god these shin splints!

I've suffered with shin splints for years. Changed shoes, reste, tried landing differently. Nothing works. Anyone else failing with their shins too?

Call around to area running stores and see if any offer a free gait analysis. If you're somewhat bowlegged, and your foot is rotating inward to compensate, it stresses the inside of the shin. You might also ask around, call sportsmed docs and see if anyone will fit you with orthotics. It can be expensive, though.
