NOOO! I had shin splint about a year ago, and it was NOT so great. I had a really long pause from all training and my condition fell alot. I've not even started training as much as I used to before the shin splint, and now when I should start training more again it feels like it's coming back ;o FU*K NO! But maybe I can "fight" against it by starting to stretch more!
It was really pain to have shin splint, sometimes I could just fall down on the ground because my feet couldn't keep me up, and it hurt so bad after every training. I don't want to go thru that all again.
