    UGH. Shin splints! So bad I remember standing at the sink (on New Year’s Eve) and sobbing because of the pain!
    Do not recall how I got them, though it was likely from to much tennis. Lots of contrast soaks (hot tub of water, towels in the freezer) did the trick. I found this useful tip at never-never-never-give-up.com It is worth it!

      The contrast bath is definitely a good option for helping to break the cycle and speed up the recovery. Glad it worked for you!
