I am an overpronator. I make sure my shoes are not worn out. I get a new pair about every couple of months.I have a question about shin splints. I've recently signed up to a gym with my wife and her mother. Outside of the gym I usually prefer to take long walks as my exercise, but sometimes I wish I could run as well (and run on a treadmill eventually in the gym). The problem with running for me is that I get shin splints immediately. Does anybody else have/had that problem, and have any advice for it?
