    Much deserved Sara, you’re a natural you lucky so and so! Been telling you for years to get yourself down to club and I’m so glad you finally did.

    Well done Sara.
    No doubt you have many suggestions for shin splints and I believe there are a number of causes. I shook mine (in the early days) by squat stretching (you may need to hang on to something to stop you keeling over backwards). You will feel the pull at the front of the shin. 3x3x30 seconds twice a day (you have to do them!). Continue till you don’t keel over backwards! Worth a try if other solutions not curing.

    Thankyou Hannah, so glad I finally did (thanks in part to that juniors run we did together with Hugh which made me remember how much I used to love running!)Thanks Howard for the advice, will definitely give it a go, along with the physio, a little more rest (occasionally!!) and hopefully it’ll be a temp blip!!
