Picture this: you start the new year finally making some waves with one of your resolutions. You eventually begin working out. A while into your new routine, you may even be making some visible progress. But, then it hits you. You start feeling some pain in your lower legs. What gives?
It may sound surprising, but your new workout routine may not be the sole cause of your shin pain, commonly known as shin splints. You’re also likely to be wearing the wrong shoes during your training. Yes, the pains may go away if you stop your running routine or other workouts, but that’s not a great solution, either.
